Call for Nominations:
Bringing Safety Home Award for Home Fire Sprinkler Advocacy Efforts
The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) and NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative are accepting applications for the 2015 Bringing Safety Home Award to recognize outstanding efforts by a safety advocate who diligently promotes the importance of home fire sprinklers.
The Bringing Safety Home Award honors members of the fire service and other sprinkler advocates who use HFSC and Fire Sprinkler Initiative resources as a key component in educating decision-makers on fire sprinklers and urging them to support sprinkler requirements at the local, state, or provincial level. Research proves that home fire sprinklers can reduce the risk of dying in home fires by 80%.
“There is a growing movement in North America to promote the life-saving aspects of home fire sprinklers,” says Lorraine Carli, NFPA vice president of Outreach and Advocacy. “The people behind this movement are passionate safety advocates who are effectively convincing the public and decision-makers that fire sprinklers should be a necessity in all new homes.”
Nominations are open to members of the fire service and other sprinkler advocates from the U.S. and Canada. The award recipient will be honored at NFPA’s Fire Sprinkler Initiative Summit, October 13-14, in Phoenix. NFPA will cover the recipient’s travel and lodging.
Nominations were due September 10, 2015. (Plan for next year.)
