PenJerDel Chapter is offering side-by-side grants for interested communities and fire departments wishing to create a side-by-side room demonstration to show the effectiveness of fire sprinklers in a residential setting. A member of the NJFSAB/PenJerDel team will be happy to assist your department with information regarding a smooth event and construction of the two units. In addition, we would be happy to assist in person on the day of the event with any questions that your department may have.
