The dedication and passion that our advocates for home fire sprinklers possess is nothing short of admirable. Those attending NFPA's Conference and Expo in Boston this week got the chance to share their passion with other members of the now 30, state-based coalitions and Canadian advocates during an informal meet and greet. Public educators were also in attendance. 

 

During the event, NFPA President Jim Pauley warmly thanked the advocates for their on-the-ground efforts and relentless persistence in promoting home fire sprinklers, despite the opposition they might be experiencing. Through informal conversations, they shared tactics and made new connections. 

 

As pictured above, coalition members proudly wore new NFPA Fire Sprinkler Initiative hats given out during the event. Download some of our newest advocacy materials by visiting the initiative's site.
