Fighting Fire in Sprinklered Buildings

Automatic sprinklers are an important line of defense when fighting a fire. Yet, even with sprinklers, fires can still burn out of control, causing excessive damage. The purpose of the Fighting Fire in Sprinklered Buildings is to provide firefighters with a greater understanding of why these losses occur and how to help prevent them. The program will provide participants with an understanding how automatic sprinklers work and how to develop a sound pre-incident plan that will improve the effectiveness of firefighters operating at protected properties.
