Today, the nonprofit Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) announced a new website with important educational information for a range of Canadian stakeholders. HomeFireSprinklerCanada.ca provides timely resources to increase interest in the life-saving benefits of installed home fire sprinklers in new construction homes.
In partnership with The Co-operators and the Canadian Automatic Sprinkler Association, this new comprehensive website presents content developed for a number of stakeholder groups including homeowners, homebuilders, real estate agents, insurance professionals and fire services. Videos, fact sheets and answers to frequently asked questions provide key information about sprinkler systems installed in homes and their life-saving benefits. Many of the resources will help fire departments that want to include fire sprinkler information in their education programs.
“The website is a great new way to make this important information available to all Canadians,” said HFSC Board President Lorraine Carli. “In particular, it will also be helpful for fire services and other sprinkler advocates as they work to educate Canadians about sprinklers’ ability to save lives and protect property.”
Since 1996 the HFSC has worked with fire services across North America to improve awareness and education of the role of sprinklers as a way to save lives, reduce injuries and minimize home fire losses.
Funding and support from HFSC’s partners CASA and The Co-operators helps make the new website possible.
