It’s Fire Sprinkler Week from February 3rd to February 9th and its aim is to raise awareness and understanding about fire prevention and control. The campaign is being supported by the National Social Housing Fire Strategy and a number ofÂ communications will be shared with our members during the week.
The aim is to raise awareness, debunk some of the myths with sprinklers and improve knowledge to those that can influence sprinkler installation…
The campaign isÂ in its first year and is beingÂ led by the following high profile organisations:
- National Fire Sprinkler Network (NFSN)
- Business Sprinkler Alliance (BSA)
- British Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association (BAFSA)
- Local Government Association (LGA)
- Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA)
A number of activities will be taking place during the week long campaign:
- A parliamentary reception to launch Sprinkler Week will take place on 29th January, with an invited audience, including MPs, business leaders and key influencers.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Attendees will be asked to support a letter calling for Government:
- to promote the installation of sprinklers in industrial and commercial premises more actively, and
- to review current fire safety guidance on sprinkler installation.
- The BRE Cost Benefit Analysis on Warehouses and CEBR Economic Impact of Commercial Fire will be launched during Sprinkler Week 2014, which,Â together with the CFOA Business Case for Sprinklers provide evidence of sprinkler benefits.
- Fire and Rescue Services (FRSs) will be undertaking events to raise awareness of the benefits of installing sprinklers, and FRSs, CFOA and the other organisations involved in Sprinkler Week will be â€˜tweetingâ€™ facts about sprinklers.
