It killed his captain and burned 70 percent of his body. But what seemed to impact the firefighter most was the long-lasting effects the fire had on Crowther's wife and two children.


Crowther's impactful story is featured in the latest issue of NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative newsletter. Also in this issue are stories on:

    • a fire chief who broke NFPA blog records and will be offering regular commentary for the Fire Sprinkler Initiative

    • a resident now living in a sprinklered home who opens up about losing three family members in a home fire

    • legislation that would require homebuilders to produce sprinkler installation costs
