Advocacy and the legislative process: Rep. Ruth Balser offers tips at NFPA sprinkler summit

Por Mike Hazell Massachusetts State Representative Ruth Balser is a longtime proponent of home fire sprinklers. During today’s NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative summit in Raleigh, Rep. Balser said a key to getting things accomplished is building relationships and offered tips on how to best communicate with lawmakers. She also underscored the value of a strong coalition and local media involvement in successful advocacy efforts. “At the end of the day, many home fire deaths are preventable. And yes, sprinklers have a cost, but how do you put a cost on a human life?” she said.
