Sprinkler Demo at CTC

CTC firefighters prepare to attack the non-sprinkled structure
On Thursday, May 16, Lt. Luke Riddle of the CTC firefighting program directed a side-by-side sprinkler demonstration to educate our public and firefighters of the growing importance of residential fire sprinklers.  Two identical units were constructed earlier in the week, with one being equipped with a single sprinkler head and the other had no fire protection.  Both were burned to show how quickly a sprinkler system could knock down a fire.  More information coming....
