Urge your Senators to support the Nursing Home Fire Safety Act (S. 1615)

The Nursing Home Fire Safety Act would provide loans or grants to nursing homes to retrofit their buildings with automatic sprinkler systems. The bill includes a non binding “sense of the Congress” that within five years, every nursing home will be equipped with sprinklers. This bill is important because it is especially difficult to evacuate and protect nursing home residents in case of fire.
