Do you know someone with a passion for home fire safety? Are they huge proponents for home fire sprinklers? If so, there's an award for that. 


The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) and NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative are teaming up to recognize outstanding local efforts by an advocate who diligently promotes the importance of home fire sprinklers. The 2017 Bringing Safety Home Award honors members of the fire service and other sprinkler advocates who use HFSC and Fire Sprinkler Initiative resources as a key component in educating decision makers on fire sprinklers and convincing them to support sprinkler requirements at the local, state, or provincial level. While recognizing the recipient to our North American audiences, he or she will be honored at NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative Summit, November 13-14, in Quincy, Massachusetts. NFPA will cover the recipient’s travel and lodging expenses for the trip. For previous award recipients, visit the Fire Sprinkler Initiative website.
