Due to the unforeseen challenges the world continues to face with COVID-19, NFPA and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) have cancelled live events during Home Fire Sprinkler Week week (May 17 – 23) in favor of a North America wide virtual effort to show the value of home fire sprinklers.
Our intent with this new virtual approach is to garner as much, if not more, attention as we have the last couple of years with Home Fire Sprinkler Week virtual. The virtual event provides a great opportunity for the fire service to bring together their voices and spread the word about the life saving benefits of home fire sprinklers. To take part in the campaign, start by visiting the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition website to:
- Find the theme and suggested content for Monday through Friday during campaign week
- Choose a video or graphic (or both) each day
- Post the information on your website, Facebook, Twitter, or on all of your social media platforms
The theme for today, Tuesday, May 19, is “Fire Sprinklers are Reliable and Simple.” The theme helps remind people about the facts of sprinklers, including how only the sprinkler closet to the fire activates. Today’s featured video and graphic include information about how sprinklers work. Download the assets below with the following message:
DYK? Only the sprinkler closest to the fire activates. #AskForHomeFireSprinklers ... or
... find the assets on the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition webpage to share with your audience.
Please join us in sharing valuable, life-saving information during Home Fire Sprinkler Week. For additional information, please visit the Fire Sprinkler Initiative.
Next up: Don't forget to join us for our Facebook Live event tomorrow at 11 AM EST. Find all of the information you need to participate on the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition webpage.
