We’re all doing thing differently these days. In keeping with physical distancing measures, we hope you will join us for our virtual Home Fire Sprinkler Week May 17-23. 
 
The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition Canada and its partners: The Co-operators Insurance, the Canadian Automatic Sprinkler Association, and NFPA have created a virtual tool kit to help associations and individual fire departments get the word out about the benefits of home fire sprinklers. 
 
We have done all the work for you! We just need your assistance disseminating messages to your member departments about the importance of these life-saving devices for the public and the fire service. 
 
Please consider supporting Home Fire Sprinkler Week and sharing these resources with your membership. The resources include daily social media messages and videos that departments can cut and paste into Facebook and Twitter posts. All the necessary information is available at https://homefiresprinklercanada.ca/2020-home-fire-sprinkler-week-resource-center/
 
Please join us in getting the word to Canadians about the benefits of residential fire sprinklers. 
 
If your members are not already Built for Life fire departments we urge you to encourage them to join the initiative; it’s a quick and easy process:  https://homefiresprinklercanada.ca/residential-fire-sprinkler-programs/
 
If you would like any assistance or further information, please contact me.
