The most recent UK research was commissioned by The National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC), National Fire Sprinkler Network (NFSN) and supported by BAFSA in the publication, “Efficiency and Effectiveness of Sprinkler Systems in the United Kingdom: An Analysis from Fire Service Data”. View the Report >
A further report now adds weight to the argument that sprinklers also have a role to play in reducing harm and protecting vulnerable people. View the Report >

We want to enhance protection against fire through the increased acceptance and use of fire sprinklers by encouraging the promotion /installation of sprinklers driving a culture change so that sprinklers are understood and accepted as the norm for UK.
Fires are adverse events destructive with their knock-on effects of fire, including their toxic and corrosive effects of smoke and the environmental effects of fire water from firefighting operations.
One way to achieve this is by working with our FRS representatives and the sprinkler industry to collate sprinkler saves, promoting their ability to operate/control a fire.
A sprinkler save is where one or more sprinkler heads activate to control/extinguish a building fire – providing powerful evidence as to the ability of sprinklers to reduce the effects of fire.
They also provide environmental benefits, reducing fire loss, damage to the environment, reducing carbon emissions and reducing the use of water from the resulting firefighting operations preventing expensive restoration of buildings, replacing expensive equipment and plant.

Your continued support collating sprinkler save makes a difference
