This Home Can Save Your Life Brochure and Box

No matter how much safety information is available online, many people still prefer to read and keep pamphlets on hand. This brochure was developed to provide consumers with updated facts about why home fires can become deadly in less than two minutes and how home fire sprinklers give people extra time to escape.

The brochure is the companion to the Sprinklered House Tool Box. You can order or download the brochure here.

The sturdy box, shaped like a house, features a genuine home fire sprinkler and educational messages. The box supports the system of home fire safety story: why you need working smoke alarms and escape planning and practice, and why home fire sprinklers provide the ultimate protection.

The box is the perfect educational tool when talking to the media, consumers and other stakeholders. You’ll want to keep it handy to use following home fires and at all your educational and code activity presentations. You can order the fire sprinkler prop box here.
