Brentwood Seizes Opportunity with Citizen's Fire Academy

Brentwood, TN-

As part of their "Public Education" night, a group of Brentwood citizens participating in the Citizen's Fire Academy received an educational session focusing on residential sprinklers.

The Citizens Fire Academy, which is made up of individuals who live or work in the City of Brentwood, also includes the City's Vice-Mayor.

Seizing the opportunity to increase the public awareness of residential sprinkler benefits, Brentwood personnel coordinated with the Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department to provide their Live Fire Sprinkler Demonstration trailer.  Following a 30-minute Power Point and Q & A classroom portion, the group relocated outside for the live fire demonstration.

"This gave us a prime opportunity to dispel several myths and misunderstandings regarding residential sprinklers, and sprinkler systems in general," said Brian Collins, who presented the material, "and I think we achieved our goal.  We even have one of the participants who's looking to retrofit his house as a result of this program."
