How NFPA can help spread sprinkler messages

NFPA's Fred Durso discusses the Fire Sprinkler Initiative's advocacy materials

Attendees at NFPA's Home Fire Sprinkler Summit looking to advocate for sprinkler requirements in their state were given a number of suggestions by Fred Durso, communications manager for NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative. The initiative's website offers videos, downloadable templates, research reports, and other materials that help sprinkler advocates across North America promote the importance of sprinkler requirements.

The FSI website has been restructured to better access all of the free advocacy materials, including a new "Advocacy Tools" section and increased presence of the more than 20 state sprinkler coalition sites, said Durso. Some of the more popular items, he added, are NFPA's Faces of Fire videos, which underscore the human impact of fire.
