Who We Are
Who We Are…
The Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) was formed in 1996 in response to the tremendous need to inform the public about the life-saving value of home fire sprinkler protection. HFSC is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and the leading resource for independent, noncommercial information about home fire sprinklers. HFSC offers educational material with details about installed home fire sprinkler systems, how they work, why they provide affordable protection and answers to common myths and misconceptions about their operation. These materials are available upon request.
In Canada, HFSC members include the Canadian Automatic Sprinkler Association (CASA), the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC), The Co-operators and regional representation for the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
