The Utah Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition was one of the recipients of the 2016 Bringing Safety Home Fire Sprinkler Initiative Grant. The coalition used the grant to host a summit for the real estate and insurance industries with the goal to educate them on the importance of home fire sprinklers. The summit had more than 70 attendees.
The summit featured a live-burn/fire sprinkler demonstration and presentations from the coalition’s current and former chairs. Following the demo, there was a discussion that resulted in the request of similar events in the future. The coalition anticipates hosting these events a few times a year.
