Amid this COVID-19 pandemic, we are learning to adjust to the many changes in our daily lives and schedules as we work from home and perhaps in slightly different capacities. Yet even during these uncertain times, we know that continuing your efforts to enhance safety is extremely important to you.

That is why NFPA and the 
Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) are extending the deadline for nominations for the Bringing Safety Home Award. The award recognizes outstanding efforts by a safety advocate who diligently promotes the importance of home fire sprinklers.


We are now accepting applications through Friday, April 3.


The Award honors members of the fire service and other fire sprinkler advocates in North America who use HFSC educational materials, NFPA data, and NFPA Fire Sprinkler Initiative resources to educate decision-makers on home fire sprinklers. Efforts are aimed at educating the public and policymakers to increase the use of home fire sprinklers in new homes. The award winner will receive a $1,000 grant to further fire sprinkler advocacy and educational efforts in his/her area.


As we chart our course through these difficult times, let’s continue to work together to help honor our favorite home fire safety leaders. Download the application form then send it to firesprinklerinitiative@nfpa.org. Or visit the HFSC webpage where you can find the form along with additional resources and links to information about the award.


As all of us continue to navigate the evolving situation with COVID-19, NFPA remains committed to supporting you with the resources you need to minimize risk and help prevent loss, injuries, and death from fire, electrical, and other hazards.
