There is no better way to witness the ravages of fire, and the life- and property-saving benefits of fire sprinkler systems! NFSA’s side-by-side burn trailers bring live burns straight to the public, across the entire U.S. Education is key, and there’s no better way to get our message across than giving the public the opportunity to feel the heat, see the fury of fire, witness a fire sprinkler activation and realize how quickly that same fire can be extinguished when sprinklers are present.
The NFSA has nearly 50 burn demonstration units throughout the country ready to spread the #FastestWater message!
Demonstrate the dangers of fires and the effectiveness of home fire sprinklers with NFSA's side by side trailer.
This trailer is ideal for a variety of large events, including fire prevention nights, political functions, and corporate outings.
The NFSA conducts dozens of burn demonstrations every year, promoting fire sprinklers to thousands of homeowners and lawmakers.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"I have seen many side-by-side burns, but did not fully grasp the power of the tool until my daughter saw a demonstration at the age of two. She understands the power of fire sprinklers."
Caleb ArmbrustSpecial Projects Manager
“The NFSA side-by-side burn demo was the highlight of the 2018 Anne Arundel County Emergency Preparedness Expo. Thanks to exciting live demonstrations like the Burn Demo, this was the best attended County Preparedness Expo to date. Over 4000 attendees made this one of the largest events of its kind in Maryland.”
James A. KrempelCommunity Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator
By using the side-by-side live fire demonstration trailers we believe we have a more powerful impact on our audience. The use of these trailers to show a sprinkler protected room fire advance compared to a un protected room gives a visual impact that resonates with students long after the event. Our hope is that they see the importance of fire sprinklers and that they save lives."

"When I saw a side-by-side burn for the first time, the importance of what we all work towards really sunk in. And I remember thinking "Wow... when I have kids, I will never live in an un-sprinklered house!"
Lainey LiottaSr. Fire Protection Market Manager Lubrizol
"The Delaware Fire Sprinkler Coalition has hosted several side-by-side sprinkler/ burn demonstrations. Each demonstration has been well received and has led to positive discussions in Delaware about residential fire sprinklers. The side-by-side demonstration is very effective for showing the positive protective attributes of fire sprinklers. DFSC plans to continue to support and host these demonstrations as time and funding allow."
