The second HFSC Canada (virtual) sprinkler symposium is Thursday, May 19, 1-3pm EDT, and I hope you and other members of your department will join us!

In 2017, NFPA and HFSC launched Home Fire Sprinkler Week, a campaign to unite fire-department personnel and others around a full week of fire sprinkler education. The goal of Home Fire Sprinkler Week, May 15-21, is to build awareness of the benefits of life-saving home fire sprinklers.
