UNIVERSITY STUDENTS POWER OF FIRE SPRINKLERS

On Friday, students from Bridgewater (MA) State University gathered with members of their local community to watch the Bridgewater Fire Department demonstrate the power of residential fire sprinklers

First, a mock dorm room without fire sprinklers was set ablaze, sounding a smoke alarm at 18 seconds. The audience gasped as the room was quickly engulfed in flames, and reached flash over at 1 minute, 15 seconds. The fire department then set fire to another mock dorm room - this one outfitted with fire sprinklers.

At 135 degrees, and within 15 seconds from the first flame, a single sprinkler head activated, completely extinguishing the small fire. The University's Telecommunications Video System team captured it all on film.
