Sam Davis, president/CEO of Island Harbor Construction in Cape Coral, FL,one of NFPA's Faces of Fire joined the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition at the 2013 International Builders Show in Las Vegas this week.
Sam offers a free fire sprinkler system in all new homes he builds, feeling strongly that customers can spend a lot of money on things like appliances, granite countertops and the like, but those things do nothing to protect a family from fire. In a video he did recently he says, "“I’m waiting for the day, although I hope it never ever happens, that we get a call that one of our systems activates, and if it does, that it saved someone’s life. A home fire sprinkler system is well worth the investment."
Sam was on hand to talk directly to attendees at this year's show. Thousands of builders and others in the building industry will pass through the Home Fire Sprinkler Coaliton's booth this week and have a chance to learn more about home fire sprinklers. Attendees learn by talking to folks but one of the highlights is learning through a fun interactive Built for Life game where participants get a chance to win prizes after answering questions about home fires and the impact of sprinklers correctly.
