The American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA) is proud to partner with Homes For Our Troops (HFOT), a publicly funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization that builds and donates specially adapted custom homes nationwide for severely injured post-9/11 Veterans, to enable them to rebuild their lives. Most of these Veterans have sustained injuries including multiple limb amputations, partial or full paralysis, and/or severe traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Approximately 4,000 Americans die and 20,000 are injured in fires each year. The risk of death or injury from fire is even greater for people with physical, mental, or sensory disabilities. Through this partnership, AFSA hopes to protect these Veterans in their homes, where roughly 80 percent of all fire deaths occur, and decrease their risk of dying in a home fire by 81 percent by installing fire sprinklers. 

AFSA is the exclusive fire sprinkler provider for HFOT. In this role, AFSA and its local partners team up to both donate and install fire sprinkler systems for custom-built, mortgage-free HFOT homes. Systems will be installed in any home where required by law or in any home where the future homeowner requests fire sprinklers. 

Would you assist us with HFOT residential fire sprinkler projects? Everything is needed for these projects, from materials to manpower. Can you volunteer to install labor; provide design services; offer inspection, testing, and maintenance services; or donate to offset expenses and fees (i.e., permitting costs)? We also need materials and supplies: sprinklers (heads, escutcheons, etc.), flexible drops, sprinkler pipe and connectors, sprinkler valves, residential riser and/or FDC, couplings, hangers, pipe cement, tape, etc. Some projects require additional special equipment such as a pump, tank, or backflow preventer.
