Sprinkler System Dedication

Following months of massive work, planning and coordination, the April 8 sprinkler system dedication ceremony was accomplished with 200 visitors on hand. NFHC leadership attending included President Coleman, who served as emcee, plus a number of officers, directors, key personnel and staff. The dedication was followed by lunch at the Emmitsburg Senior Center.

After lunch, a live-burn sprinkler demonstration occurred outside, which also went out via live-feed on Facebook. 

The live-burn at the National Fire Heritage Center on April 8 demonstrated to community residents in attendance the life- and property-saving benefits of residential fire sprinklers.
