Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

On the eve of next month’s ICC Code hearing in Dallas, it seemed only appropriate to opine about our continuing fight for residential sprinklers in ALL new homes. The National Assoc. of Home Builders (NAHB) has been working hard to undermine the ICC’s earlier ruling (BIG money talks, folks) and we must show up in force to reaffirm our hard earned success in Minneapolis and Baltimore. If you are not familiar with this very important issue, please research and learn more. There have been many fabulous articles written (especially by my dear friend Ozzie Mirkhah) – just Google the subject, there will be no shortage of fodder.
The fight is not over!!

The fight will not end Paul as long as money is to be made by the NAHB, sad but true. Well done Brother!

Well said Brother!

Are we the only ones who truly care about our friends and neighbors as well as the safety of those we don't know! This is something we should really be pushing to get passed and on to the end user! Why can't we get the President to support this like he did with health care?
