Protecting lives and saving property from fire through the installation of sprinklers in new homes is the topic at NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative summit in Raleigh, NC. About 60 attendees, representing the fire service, local government, public safety and other organizations, have gathered for a one-day meeting to network, brainstorm, share best practices, and discuss challenges associated with local and state efforts to bring about sprinkler requirements for new one- and two-family homes.
