We see this as a big step forward towards widespread acceptance of residential fire sprinklers and wish to thank USFA for this wonderful opportunity.
Patterson, NY (PRWEB) October 7, 2009
The National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA), the longest-tenured fire sprinkler advocacy organization in the U.S., has joined forces with the United States Fire Administration (USFA), an entity of the Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency, to help promote the USFA's Install. Inspect. Protect.Campaign. The campaign, which is designed to promote fire safety, will be launched "virtually" on Wednesday, October 28, 2009, with a radio media tour involving U.S. Fire Administrator Kelvin Cochran.
The Install. Inspect. Protect Campaign is aimed at encouraging Americans to practice fire safety by installing and maintaining smoke alarms and residential fire sprinklers, practicing fire escape plans and performing home safety walk-throughs to remove fire hazards from the home. NFSA plans to support these goals by distributing key materials to NFSA members and to the general public. NFSA will also promote the campaign on its Web site and will act as a source of information for anyone that is interested in supporting the campaign.
"We are truly excited about this partnership, because our goal to increase awareness about the benefits of fire sprinklers complements the objectives of USFA's Install. Inspect. Protect. Campaign," said John Viniello, president of NFSA. "We see this as a big step forward towards widespread acceptance of residential fire sprinklers and wish to thank USFA for this wonderful opportunity."
