Advocating for Home Fire Sprinklers

One of the goals of the Fire Sprinkler Initiative (FSI) is to give home fire sprinkler advocates the tools they need to encourage local governments to adopt legislation mandating these life-saving systems for all new one- and two-family homes. Members of the fire service and other safety advocates are in a unique position to influence the legislative process as leaders in the community. They can speak to the death and destruction they see every day caused by home fires and how home fire sprinklers can help reduce these painful losses.
