First Home Fire Sprinkler Day Set

NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative and the coalition want safety advocates across the United States to host simultaneous events, such as live burn and fire sprinkler demonstrations and fire department open houses, on May 19 and hope to see them take place in all 50 states.

NFPA and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition are initiating a day of action to address America's problem of home fires: Their first Home Fire Sprinkler Day is scheduled for May 19, 2018.

Home fires claim kill seven people on average per day. While home fire sprinklers can help to eliminate them, legislative barriers and lack of awareness about the technology have prevented their widespread use in new homes. The day is meant as a way for America's fire service and safety advocates to unite for action that raises national awareness of these challenges and fire sprinklers' lifesaving capability.

NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative and the coalition want safety advocates across the United States to host simultaneous events, such as live burn and fire sprinkler demonstrations and fire department open houses, on May 19 and hope to see them take place in all 50 states.

"The alarming number of home fire deaths and injuries each year should be on the radar of every decision maker and member of the media," said Lorraine Carli, NFPA's vice president of Outreach and Advocacy and the coalition's president. "Through this event, we hope to illuminate the fire problem and its solution on a national scale. Fire sprinklers have been a U.S. model building code requirement since 2009, yet challenges to its adoption still exist. Taking action collectively will send a powerful message that fire sprinklers are widely accepted and must be embraced in every state."
