HFSC Video Series: Founding Coalition Member NFSA Explains Need to Continue Education about the Value of Home Fire Sprinklers
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) and to help celebrate, HFSC developed a weekly video series featuring interviews with industry professionals and practitioners who share stories of their commitment to advocating for home fire sprinklers in communities across the country. Last week, HFSC President Lorraine Carli explained the history and evolution of the coalition, its dedication to the life-saving technology of home sprinklers and commitment to grassroots fire safety education, and HFSC’s emphasis on digital and online resources to further the important messages of the coalition. If you missed the video, you can find it on our NFPA Today blog. This week, HFSC introduces Shane Ray, president of the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA) and NFSA Executive Officer, Vickie Pritchett. In their interview with Lorraine Carli, Ray and Pritchett explain NFSA’s role as a founding member of HFSC, its partnership with the American Fire Sprinkler Association and NFPA, and their continued efforts to educate local officials, the fire service and first responders, home builders, developers, realtors, and consumers about the value of sprinklers.
