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.
Symposium at a glance:
Lorraine Carli, NFPA vice president of outreach and advocacy, will explain HFSC Canada and discuss builder incentives
Ryan Schell, chief fire prevention officer, Central York Fire Services, will outline the process of working with a developer to include sprinklers in a new subdivision
CAFC president John McKearney, CAFC executive director Tina Saryeddine, and Leduc Fire Chief Kevin Lefebvre will discuss the CAFC white paper “Myth busting and team building: Advancing a win-win approach to residential sprinklers”
Sean Tracey, HFSC chair, will address stakeholders, best practices, resources, and next steps
All speakers will participate in a panel discussion and Q and A session facilitated by NFPA regional director Laura King
