Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition Announces Stipends to Fire Departments to Support Home Fire Sprinkler Outreach
Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) announced they will award $300 stipends to 30 fire departments that demonstrate a plan to share the importance of home fire sprinklers with their community during Home Fire Sprinkler Week (HFSW). Only departments that are part of HFSC’s BUILT FOR LIFE program are eligible to receive the stipend. The application link is available here, and applications are open until March 1.
Some options for outreach programs to qualify for the stipend include, but are not limited to, conducting a virtual Home Fire Sprinkler contest, producing a banner or canopy tent to display Home Fire Sprinkler graphics, setting up a monitor in the community to play HSFC educational videos, or building an NFPA 13D display to explain how a home fire sprinkler works. Fire departments that are unable to schedule an outreach event may still be eligible for the stipend.
Materials are also available for free to assist departments with displays and demonstrations for the usefulness of home fire sprinklers.
