What do you need to make your local home fire sprinkler education outreach a success? Bet we have it!
How can you help homebuilders see how sprinklers will be installed in their homes? HFSC’s got a great new tool that gives builders a 3-D, behind-the-walls view of a 13D system. The video is a great teaching tool for others in your community as well.
Do you need persuasive information to use in meetings with local officials? We specifically created the video Protecting Your Community to help you answer the questions that local decision-makers have.
You’ve done the hard work and now sprinklers are required in new homes. How can you help residents understand their sprinkler systems and avoid mishaps? That’s easy: work with local builders and sprinkler contractors to place the Living with Sprinklers materials in each sprinklered home. An illustrated hangtag explains the workings of their 13D system, while a brief video walks the residents through a sprinklered home so they can understand the system. Soon HFSC will also offer a new Living with Sprinklers brochure.
Dealing with myths and misunderstandings? You’re not alone. HFSC research shows that the most common myth about sprinklers is that they all activate at once. Separating Fact from Fiction helps you spread the facts and refute that myth and all the nonsense.
Need a good, nontechnical way to help children learn about sprinklers? Visit SprinklerSmarts and you’ll find all the free teaching tools you and your local schoolteachers need to introduce children in grades K-5 and 6-8 to sprinklers. It’s free, of course.
Need something to jazz up your presentations? HFSC has that. Download our animations that illustrate how sprinklers work and a comparison of fire sprinkler and fire hose water usage. For real drama, embed a tale of two families (comparing sprinklered and non-sprinklered home fires) and the fire timeline.
