Parksville Fire Home Fire Sprinkler Demo
Posted: Oct 9, 2019
The Parksville Volunteer Fire Department recently received $500 in support from the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) to increase awareness of the lifesaving benefits of home fire sprinklers.

As part of Parksville Fire’s public education efforts, the live demonstration was conducted on October 6 at the department’s fire prevention week open house. The demo featured two similarly furnished rooms; one protected with fire sprinklers and one without. People who attended the demonstration were able to view firsthand how quickly a fire can become deadly versus the quick response and effectiveness of a fire sprinkler system in controlling or extinguishing a fire.

The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition, a non-profit educational organization, selected 22 departments across Canada that participate in its Built for Life Fire Department program to receive the stipends and educate residents about the benefits of home fire sprinklers. HFSC is the number one resource for accurate, non-commercial information and materials about home sprinklers. www.homefiresprinklercanada.ca.
