HFSC Video Series: AFSA President Discusses how to Decrease Sprinkler Installation Costs
To help celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC), HFSC launched a weekly video series beginning in May featuring interviews with industry professionals and practitioners who share stories and facts about home fire sprinkler advocacy in communities across the country. Last week, HFSC board member and FM Global assistant vice president and fire service programs manager Mike Spaziani discussed FM Global’s full-scale fire test on the effectiveness of home fire sprinklers, the beneficial environmental impact of sprinklers, and FM Global’s partnership with HFSC in educating the public on home fire sprinklers. In the video, Spaziani discusses FM Global’s environmental impact report from 2010, which can be found here. If you missed that video, check out our blog on it here. This week, HFSC President Lorraine Carli is joined by AFSA President Bob Caputo to discuss AFSA’s role as a founding member of HFSC. AFSA, NFSA and NFPA pooled their resources in 1996, creating HFSC to focus exclusively on home fire sprinkler education. In the video, Bob talks about the importance of public education on home fire sprinklers and the costs of sprinklers – specifically, how that cost can decrease if the sprinklers are hooked up to the plumbing system. Check out this week’s video below: Help NFPA and HFSC share the facts about the affordability, reliability, and effective protection of home fire sprinklers.
