The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition has announced its annual Home Fire Sprinkler Week! This week is designed to educate and inform fire officials, building managers, and homeowners on the value of home fire sprinklers.
Sadly, even in states where there is a “mandatory option” for homeowners to consider having fire sprinklers installed, very few choose to have them. The NFPA and other associations such as the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA) work to change this trend. Every year, the NFSA, NFPA, as well as several fire departments across the country all work together to inform the public on how home fire sprinklers work. This is accomplished through several events, such as live fire sprinkler demonstrations where the public can learn how fire sprinklers operate while also seeing them put out a live fire.
Consider Protecting Your Family This Home Fire Sprinkler Week
Every year thousands of Americans lose their lives in home fires. Every home fire is 100% preventable. Take steps to ensure that you and your family have at least two escape plans and an emergency meeting place in the event of a fire. Make sure that your smoke detectors are working and be sure to change the batteries twice a year. Also be sure to replace smoke detectors after 10 years.
If you have home fire sprinklers, make sure they are inspected and tested.
