The NFSA Wisconsin Chapter, part of the Wisconsin Fire Sprinkler Coalition, participated in the Beyond Green display at the Metropolitan Builders Association Home Show. The display featured a mirror image of a home—one half was the rough construction, and the other half was the final construction. The NFPA13D system was designed and installed by the Design Build Fire Protection.
Members from the Wisconsin Fire Chief’s Association, the Wisconsin Fire Inspector’s Association, the Wisconsin Chapter of the National Fire Sprinkler Association, and the Professional Fire Fighters of Wisconsin staffed the booth. More than 1,000 people visited the booth and learned details about home fire sprinklers. This is the second year the coalition participated in the show and plan to participate next year. The National Fire Sprinkler Association Wisconsin Chapter provided the grant to the Wisconsin Fire Sprinkler Coalition and paid for the MBA membership and show registration.
