HARRIS COUNTY — The Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office was awarded the Texas Fire Sprinkler Coalition Award at the 2018 Texas Fire Marshals Conference in Austin, Texas. Each year, the Texas Fire Sprinkler Coalition presents awards to Texas jurisdictions for successful fire sprinkler saves. Fire sprinkler saves are determined when a fire sprinkler system activates, reducing the damage a fire causes.
“The mission of the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office is to reduce the loss of life and property due to fire in unincorporated Harris County,” said Harris County Fire Marshal Laurie Christensen. “We are ecstatic to receive this award for our continued efforts to promote fire and life safety and reduce property loss caused by fire. Fire sprinklers dramatically reduce heat, flames and smoke produced in a fire, therefore reducing property loss when a fire occurs.”
The Harris County Fire Marshal’s Officer reported 14 fire sprinkler saves between October 2017 and September 2018.
