The Canadian Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (CHFSC) has just recently launched it’s new website https://homefiresprinklercanada.ca/. This site is an educational centre for anyone to visit for factual and unbiased information on residential fire sprinklers.
The site covers everything from a ‘Quick Guide’ overview section through to sections for the fire service, homebuilders and other professionals (e.g. real estate, insurance, and building and water officials).
In celebration and recognition of this milestone event, the CHFCS will be providing 10 – $1000 Stipends to Fire Departments that want to conduct live home fire sprinkler demonstrations.
At this time there is no deadline for the stipends to be allocated, but there is a requirement that any money dispersed should be spent by the end of 2017. So, it goes without saying… the earlier applications are received, the better chances that all the money will get allocated and used within the expected time frame.
To apply simply open up the attached .html link and follow the instructions…
Good luck with your applications and please feel free to share with anyone you think may be interested.
If there is any further information required please call the HFSC toll free line at 1-877-550-HFSC (4372)
