August 10, 2004
The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) has been awarded a 2003 U.S. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Fire Prevention and Safety Grant for its national residential fire sprinkler awareness program, "Built for Life." The nearly $600,000 grant will be utilized by HFSC over the coming year to conduct its two-part, national strategic initiative designed to generate interest in home fire sprinkler system installations. The program will be carried out by Frankfort, IL-based marketing and communications firm Peg Paul & Associates, HFSC's communications manager. It will also expand HFSC's existing general public outreach efforts and increase the variety, availability and distribution of free home fire sprinkler training and educational materials to the U.S. fire service.
