New Jersey Fire departments are invited to apply for a special grant from the New Jersey Fire Sprinkler Advisory Board (NJFSAB) to help promote fire safety in their communities. The NJFSAB grants provide up to $1,000 directly to fire departments to help fund the construction of a side-by-side burn demonstration, which shows the effectiveness of fire sprinkler systems.
The side-by-side demonstration features two fully furnished rooms, that are set aflame simultaneously — but only one has a fire sprinkler system. This illustrates how quickly fires can spread, and the important role fire sprinklers play in effectively dousing fires which saves property and lives.
