Live burn demonstration
The effectiveness of side-by-side burn demonstrations was evident in Colorado this month, when the Colorado Fire Sprinkler Coalition helped stage a public event that was highlighted by the media. Local TV stations caught the live demonstration involving two structures mimicking a living room—one equipped with sprinklers, one without—that were set on fire. These events showcase a sprinkler system’s rapidity in dousing flames and the devastating aftermath that could occur in homes without these systems.

For dramatic footage from the event, visit NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative blog.
