On September 30, 2016, the University of Pennsylvania hosted a side-by-side burn demonstration and safety fair. This event was open to the public, with invited guests including area first responders, University administrators and students of all ages. The Philadelphia Fire Department assisted with the safety and management of the burn, which was also supported by volunteers from the National Fire Sprinkler Association, PenJerDel Chapter and Sprinkler Fitters Local 692.
