Fire Sprinklers Protect Lives and Property

Most people don't realize that 8 out of 10 fire deaths occur in the home. They usually happen at night when people are asleep. People also do not understand how fast fires spread and how they can go from a tiny flame to total destruction in as little as three minutes. Fire sprinklers can suppress and often extinguish a fire before the fire department arrives, giving people time to escape.

Below are three new public service announcements that dispel Hollywood myths about fire sprinklers. Each spoofs a movie set where a burglar tries to clear a room full of people by setting off the sprinkler system. His antics fail, but the humor succeeds at entertaining AND educating.
