New and improved advocacy section added to Fire Sprinkler Initiative website


By Fred Durso, Jr.

Advocating for home fire sprinklers just got a tad easier.

Le nouveau “Advocacy Toolssection on the Fire Sprinkler Initiative site is now the go-to place for free materials and resources that help make an effective case for home fire sprinklers. This section is where you’ll find an array of shareable videos (including NFPA’s Faces of Fire), case studies, and fact sheets (some of them are now downloadable) that underscore fire at its worst and sprinklers at their best.

Also worth noting in this section is the newAdvocacy Materialspage. Download a template that will help you craft a letter to your legislator or code-making official, use one of NFPA’s ads that promote sprinkler statistics, or gather signatures supporting sprinklers using NFPA’s sprinkler petition.

Check out the new section when you get a moment and let us know what you think.
