The Wisconsin Fire Sprinkler Coalition was awarded the 2016 Bringing Safety Home Fire Sprinkler Initiative Grant. The grant was primarily used for audio/visual equipment intended for use at trade shows to help endorse home fire sprinklers. The most notable trade shows were the Milwaukee Metropolitan Builders Show and the Madison Building Show, which targeted builders and individuals interested in home-related equipment.
Additionally, the grant supported presentations to the fire service. It will also be used for future presentations at the Wisconsin State Fire Chiefs Association spring and annual conference. Also, the grant will fund a fire sprinkler summit taking place in May. (Registration for the event is now open.) The summit will target fire service personnel, municipal leaders, architects, developers, and building officials.
