This past month I was fortunate enough to attend The NFPA (National Fire Protection Assoc.) Conference. One of my sessions was hosted by the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) with the intent of providing useful information surrounding the issue of Home Fire Sprinklers. I was happy to learn yesterday that the HFSC has launched a new website that provides information for Home Buyers, Builders and the Fire Service. I have posted the useful information from the Builder’s page below. The time is now for us to change our perceptions of what is an acceptable level of protection and safety in our homes. As the HFSC likes to say : Protect what you value most™!
