HFSC updated the series with grant funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Fire Prevention & Safety Grant award program.
HFSC’s evaluation showed strong interest from homebuilders and favorable response:
- 88% said the program was worth watching;
- 85% said it improved their knowledge about home fire sprinklers;
- and nearly three-quarters said they are more likely to recommend fire sprinklers after seeing the program.
HFCS informs that Anthony Palladino, Building Designer CGP at Golden Rule Builders in Catlett, Virginia, was one of those who participated and said, “HFSC is my go-to resource for educational materials,” Palladino says. “The way the information is centered on educating the consumer with basic facts about home fire sprinklers is very important to me as a builder.”
HFSC continues to excel, providing free educational pieces. Field advocates can now point to this much needed tool when engaging builders in their communities.
