You didn't have to look far to notice one of the stars of NFPA's Conference and Expo, happening this week in Las Vegas. Getting its time in the spotlight was the fire sprinkler, with NFPA dedicating an entire section of the expo floor to this technology.
This area, called The Annex: Focus on Suppression, featured NFPA experts discussing various areas of fire suppression. On display was a "fire sprinkler petting zoo," where attendees could view the various fire sprinkler heads created over the years. Compliments of the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC), there was also a fire sprinkler riser display seen in sprinklered homes. (Here's how you can create your own.) A popular, physical takeaway was HFSC's new fire sprinkler prop, a great tool safety advocates can use to demonstrate the simplicity of fire sprinklers.
