NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative awarded its Bringing Safety Home Grant to 15 fire safety groups in 2016 in order to help further the acceptance and use of home fire sprinklers. One of the 15 deserving recipients was the Connecticut Fire Sprinkler Coalition.
The coalition received a $5,000 grant, which was used for a number of great causes. For example, the coalition created state-specific billboard ads and educational pamphlets on home fire sprinklers. The Connecticut Coalition also used the money to purchase a booth at the Connecticut Home Builders and Remodelers Show in Hartford. Additionally, the grant was used to buy signage at public events, including an ad (shown in this post) at the Connecticut Tigers Baseball Stadium seen by more than 50,000 attendees. The grant also funded a side-by-side burn demonstration.
