During Fire Prevention Week, the team at the National Fire Sprinkler Association showcased the power of home fire sprinklers during a segment on "Fox & Friends." This wasn't your average burn from a fire sprinkler trailer, though; NFSA created a new portion of their trailer to showcase how a closed door impacts fire spread.
According to NFPA, a closed door may slow the spread of smoke, heat, and fire. A sign stating "close before you doze" was placed near that compartment on the trailer. Smoke alarms sounded during the fire, which served as a reminder to the public to install smoke alarms inside and outside of all bedrooms in a home. (For best protection, make sure all smoke alarms are interconnected.)
