A tour guide at the new VISION House® exhibit in INNOVENTIONS at Epcot®, explains the environmental benefit of home fire sprinklers.
"Here's something I did not expect to find in a green home project, but it turns out that fire sprinklers like these actually protect the environment and your home. Automatic sprinklers can limit the spread of a fire, and they use much less water than a typical fire hose. That means less air pollution, and most importantly, less stuff that gets hauled off to the landfill," she said.
In addition, in the event of a fire, home fire sprinkleres reduce the release of greenhouse gases by 98%, reduce fire damage by up to 97%; reduce water usage to fight a home fire by upwards of 90%; and reduce the amount of water pollution released into the environment.
NFPA has partnered with Green Builder® Media, North America's leading media company focused on sustainable living to participate in the VISION House® exhibit in INNOVENTIONS. The exhibit presents green living ideas in a fun and informative manner that will empower guests with the knowledge that a sustainable future is possible
