A project of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Fire Sprinkler Initiative and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition.
This week, many fire departments and safety professionals participate in a campaign to increase awareness about how dangerous home fires can be and the benefits of home fire sprinklers.
According to the NFPA, more than three-quarters of all civilian fire deaths are caused by home fires. Tragedies that can be avoided! This week, the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) and the NFPA are bringing awareness to new construction homes being built with sprinklers. Home fire sprinklers uniquely prevent injuries and deaths, and they protect the structure making it safer for responding firefighters.
