The 3rd Annual Missouri Fire Sprinkler Summit was held March 22, 2017 at the Eureka FPD Training Center. Fire Chief Rick Ennis, the President of the Missouri Fire Sprinkler Coalition welcomed approximately 40 guests to the Summit. There were presentations made by Chief Ennis, Randy Cole, NFSA, Jeff Hudson, NFPA, Paul Mercurio, Clayton FD, Dale Hicks, Homebuilder and Donna Henson, Common Voices.
Donna Henson spoke about her son who died in a fire in an unsprinklered building and Dale Hicks spoke about providing fire sprinklers in all of the new homes he was building.
The St. Louis Fire Sprinkler Alliance did a Side-By-Side Burn Demonstration after lunch to show how quickly a fire can go to flashover and how quickly fire sprinklers can save your home.
