NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative team constantly hears comments from the fire service and other safety advocates that in order to create tomorrow’s safer homes, we need to better educate our children today. As future homeowners, children can play a crucial role in bolstering demand for home fire sprinklers. The more educated a child gets on home fire sprinklers, the more likely they are to demand this safety feature as adults.

The creative minds at the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition have developed an entire website,, crammed with interactive videos, games, and lesson plans on home fire sprinklers. Whether you’re a member of the fire service, maestro, or parent (or perhaps all of the above), there are materials and activities catered to your group.
