AFSA to host live burn/sprinkler demonstration

By Fred Durso, Jr. Are you attending the American Fire Sprinkler Association’s (AFSA) Annual Convention and Exhibition, October 10-13 in Phoenix? Do you live in or near Phoenix? Mark your calendars for AFSA’s live burn/sprinkler demonstration taking place on October 13 in conjunction with the convention. Open to the public, the event compares two structures–one with sprinklers, one without–that are both set on fire. Sprinkler advocates across North America are using these demonstrations to convey the dangerous speed of today’s fire and how quickly home fire sprinklers can quell the danger. Visit AFSA’s blog for more details about the event.
