I have been associated with Tom Lia for many years through my involvement with the Chicago Industry Promotion (IP) Committee. Through his efforts we have realized remarkable progress with 13D ordinance adoptions and countless sprinkler threshold reductions.
One year ago, NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative recognized Tom as the very first Home Fire Sprinkler Champion. Today, as Tom launches this blog, he is afforded further recognition with the opportunity to reach a national audience.

I am a firm believer in sprinkler systems and I think it should be mandatory in every home especially those with multi units. I honestly believe if they had a law in Illinois and ENFORCED it my brother would be alive today!
