The Massachusetts Fire Sprinkler Coalition was one of 15 fire safety groups awarded NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative Bringing Safety Home Grant in 2016 to help further the acceptance and use of home fire sprinklers.
The coalition received a $5,000 grant, which funded three exciting opportunities. The coalition conducted three, side-by-side burn demonstrations, a powerful live display of the difference sprinklers can make in home fires. Additionally, the coalition produced a TV spot warning homeowners of the danger of fires, and encouraging them to consider installing fire sprinklers. Lastly, the coalition produced educational brochures, which were distributed to fire departments and the state’s decision makers.
