National expert on fire prevention visits NFPA headquarters to promote home fire sprinklers

Por Fred Durso, Jr. Images of firefighter Phil Tammaro’s injuries flashed on screens filling one of NFPA’s conference rooms. Photos showcased burns on his legs he sustained at two years old during a 1971 home fire. For four decades, doctors had to treat these burns. NFPA staff had mixed reactions to the images; some turned away while others couldn’t take their eyes off the screens. Sin embargo, they collectively applauded Tammaro for sharing his story in the hopes of increasing safety at home. Tammaro is one of NFPA’s newest Faces of Fire, a component of the Fire Sprinkler Initiative that humanizes today’s home fire problem
