NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative is an advocacy campaign aimed at increasing the number of new, one- and two-family homes protected by fire sprinklers.

NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative helps stakeholders navigate the code-making and legislative process to get fire sprinkler requirements for new homes passed in their communities. The initiative offers an array of free research, resources, and on-the-ground support that can help sprinkler advocates underscore the life-saving impact of home fire sprinklers. NFPA also assists sprinkler coalitions in convincing the public and their decision makers that sprinklers are needed in homes, where people have the greatest risk of dying from fire. These resources are complemented by NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative blog that disseminate news underscoring the home fire problem and tactics for successful advocacy and sprinkler code adoption.

Home fire sprinklers are a crucial, life-saving technology, since sprinklers can reduce the risk of dying from home fires by 80 percent and can reduce the risk of property loss by 70 percent. If you have any questions, please contact us. 

NFPA President Jim Pauley gives an overview of NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative.
