Borrow the Two Available Fire Sprinkler Demonstration Trailers

NIFIA Demonstration Trailer

The Northern Illinois Fire Sprinkler Advisory Board (NIFSAB), in conjunction with the Illinois Fire Inspectors Association and Northern Illinois Fire Inspectors Association, provide two demo trailers for use by Fire Services, Fire Brigades, and Public Information Officials.

Sprinkler are provided by donations from the manufacturers. You supply the tow vehicle with a Class III hitch. Both are equipped with residential fire sprinklers, fire pumps, and a 200 plus gallon tank. If you do not want to use the pumps, you can work the demo by going straight through a FDC and a hydrant. Don’t forget to take photos and call us with the results.
