The nonprofit Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) is now offering $500 stipends to 50 qualifying fire departments looking to increase home fire sprinkler education in their communities.


The stipend will help pay for materials needed to build displays or demonstration units, or produce educational banners, posters, or other educational materials, to be distributed at events during Home Fire Sprinkler Week, May 17-23, 2020. Requirements to receive the stipend include such actions as:


  • Ensuring the event contains home fire sprinkler educational outreach
  • Endeavoring to extend the educational benefits beyond the actual event (such as through local media or social media)
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of the events
  • Reporting event summary and evaluation findings to HFSC


Looking for additional information to help with your event? HFSC provides free guidance and resources via its Fire and Sprinkler Burn Demonstration Kit.
