It's nearly impossible to not get emotional when hearing Princella Lee-Bridges speak about the fire that ravaged nearly half of her body. As one of NFPA's Faces of Fire, she's now a traveling storyteller on a mission to effect change. She knows firsthand that building literal safe houses that include home fire sprinklers can combat the debilitating effects of fire.


Lee-Bridges' latest speaking engagement was at the National Healthy Homes Conference this week in Nashville, Tennessee. Hosted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, the event included exhibitors and more than 140 education sessions dedicated to improving America's homes.
