Sprinker Trailer
Take a gander at this mobile beauty, a trailer 24 feet in length that's giving Washington residents an up-close-and-personal look at residential sprinklers. Since hitting the road five years ago, the trailer has managed to keep on trucking.

What has made this eye-catching vehicle so popular is its contents; half of the compartmentalized trailer is used for live burn and sprinkler demonstrations while the other half is filled with educational materials. For instance, in the educational compartment, there's a freestanding, 300-gallon tank and pump that's in accordance with NFPA 13D: Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes, and looping videos of NFPA's Faces of Fire, a component of NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative that underscores personal stories of those impacted by home fires.
