HOME IMPROVEMENT                                                                HIDDEN PICTURES PUZZLE
             DEC. 1
In an effort to demonstrate the importance of smoke alarms
and fire sprinkler systems, the Detroit Fire Department, in
partnership with the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC)
and Local 704, Sprinkler Fitters Union, will conduct a live burn
on Wednesday, Dec. 1, from 10 a.m. to noon at Engine 27,
located at 4700 W. Fort St.

The demonstration will involve two side-by-side rooms. It will
graphically demonstrate the dangers of fire, and how smoke
alarms and automatic fire sprinklers can save lives and pre-
vent a home disaster. The two rooms are eight feet by eight
feet and are complete with furniture. The demonstration will
show three things:

* The destruction that occurs during a room fire, especially
during a flashover, in which an entire room can quickly burst
into flames when the room temperature escalates.
* How quickly smoke alarms activate in the event of a fire.
* How an automatic fire sprinkler in a room can quickly con-
trol a fire.

According to HFSC, fire sprinklers that are installed during
new home construction often cost no more than 1 to 1½ per-
cent of the total building cost.
