Mark your calendars! NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition are initiating Home Fire Sprinkler Day on Saturday, May 19, 2018. The event's goal is to raise national awareness of this life-saving technology by having advocates host events simultaneously. Taking action on this day is easy. Some ideas include:
- Host a side-by-side live burn/fire sprinkler demonstration
- Conduct a fire department open house featuring fire sprinkler information and sprinkler riser display
- Initiate a media event/walk-through of a sprinklered home in your community
The event webpage has more information. Please help spread the word among fire and life safety educators on this important event. And take steps now to start planning an activity for the event. We recommend you first check in with your state fire sprinkler coalition (if you state has one) to see how you can coordinate efforts with them.
