During an event that launched the new Rhode Island Fire Sprinkler Coalition, NFPA filmed a live burn/fire sprinkler demonstration using a 360-degree camera. The video underscores how rapidly fire spreads in today's homes and how quickly home fire sprinklers, a requirement in all U.S. model building codes, can extinguish the flames.


For optimal viewing, access the video via the YouTube app on your phone and maneuver your device in different directions to see various aspects of the event. Or, open the video in Google Chrome, click and hold your mouse over the video, and move the mouse in different directions to see the audience's reaction to the burn and the fire department's response to the demos.
