VIDEO: Protect Your Family with Residential Fire Sprinklers

As national Fire Prevention Week (October 9 – 15) nears and fire departments prepare their public education activities for the weeklong event, a newly released video aims to educate homeowners about the dangers of fires in today’s homes as well as the benefits of home fire sprinklers.

The hand-drawn whiteboard video can be found on YouTube.

Home fire sprinkler protection is more important than ever to protect residents and responding firefighters. The National Fire Protection Association reports that over 9 out of 10 structure fire deaths occur in homes. In addition, national studies from UL and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have proven that today’s home fires are burning hotter and faster than ever before due to the open-design concepts, lightweight construction and synthetic furnishings and contents. Residents can have as little as three minutes to escape in today’s homes, compared with almost 30 minutes to escape in homes of the past. The faster growth of fire and smoke also means greater dangers for responding firefighters.
Please share this video with your friends, family, and colleagues, and post it on your website and social media outlets.
