HAMILTON, N.J., May 15, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- New Jersey Fire departments are invited to apply for a special grant from the New Jersey Fire Sprinkler Advisory Board (NJFSAB)  to help promote fire safety in their communities.

The NJFSAB grants provide up to $1,000 directly to fire departments to help fund the construction of a side-by-side burn demonstration, which shows the effectiveness of fire sprinkler systems.

The application deadline is September 1, 2017.  Any applications received after this date will be considered for the 2018 grant cycle.

The side-by-side demonstration features two fully furnished rooms, that are set aflame simultaneously -- but only one has a fire sprinkler system.  This illustrates how quickly fires can spread, and the important role fire sprinklers play in effectively dousing fires which saves property and lives.
