Proof that the home fire sprinkler movement is spreading throughout North America, the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) has launched a new website strictly for Canadian stakeholders. The site will serve as an educational outlet for a growing army of Canadian fire service and other safety advocates now championing for fire sprinklers in new homes.
The site places a Canadian spin on resources found on HFSC's main site; for instance, there's a new library filled with Canadian-specific reports, including a recent study on the economic impact and potential years of life lost from home fire deaths conducted by the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto. Similarly, many of HFSC's popular resources for homeowners, homebuilders, real estate agents, insurance professionals, and the fire service have been Canadianized.
The site "will be helpful for the fire service and other sprinkler advocates as they work to educate Canadians about sprinklers' ability to save lives and protect property," says Lorraine Carli, HFSC president and NFPA vice president of Outreach and Advocacy.
