By Fred Durso, Jr.

Looking to give a simple yet stellar educational pitch for home fire sprinklers in your community but don’t know where to start? NFPA’s new mini lesson will leave audiences with a clearer picture on the role these devices play in saving lives.

Using a three-step process, the new lesson taps into practices once deemed safe (smoking on planes, hockey players on ice without helmets) and gives audiences a chance to ponder safety advances made since then. The lesson then hits home advances in fire safety, particularly the use of home fire sprinklers. The instructor can engage the audience with discussion questions on these devices and facts about their operation.

Download the free lesson plan and spend 10 minutes instructing your community about the necessity of home fire sprinklers.
