Chesapeake AP Broadcasters AssociationThe 10-part radio series "Firefight," an all-encompassing look at residential sprinklers and the battle for mandatory installation in Virginia, recently won the Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association award for "outstanding news series."

The 2013 report thoroughly examines nearly every aspect of home fire sprinklers and how eliminating the sprinkler requirement mandated in all model building codes is placing firefighters and homeowners in harm's way. Per the report, safety seems to be getting trumped by politics and profit.
