The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) and NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative are teaming up with the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) to present a national award that recognizes the outstanding local efforts of a fire chief who has worked to increase the installation of residential fire sprinkler systems in his or her service area.

HFSC and NFPA will jointly present the “Bringing Safety Home” Award during the IAFC’s Fire and Life Safety Section at the 2012 Fire Rescue International in Denver, CO, this August. 

Nominations for the award will be accepted through July 6, 2012. 

The recipient will be selected from nominees that have used HFSC’s educational materials along with NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative resources as the foundation of a local, regional or statewide program to educate about the need for more home fire sprinkler system installations as a method to reduce fire injury and death.
