Blog Post created by freddurso Employee on May 9, 2017

Realizing the benefits of collaboration, Rhode Island safety advocates have formed the country's 30th state sprinkler coalition. The Rhode Island Fire Sprinkler Coalition consists of the state's fire service and other safety advocates aimed at localizing fire sprinkler education and advocacy. 

 

During a recent, kickoff event that included a live burn demonstration (check out the 360-degree video NFPA created of the burn), we interviewed coalition members to discuss the state's home fire problem and necessity of fire sprinklers in new homes. Watch the new video featuring these interviews:
