|History of Fire Sprinklers
The inventor of the automatic sprinkler, Henry
Parmelee, originally created this fire protection device
to protect his piano factory back in 1874. In other
words, he had spent a lot of money on his piano
business and the financial risk of losing his equipment
and inventory to a fire was much greater than the cost
of installing fire sprinklers.
Today, risk management is a standard practice for any
business manager responsible for protecting company
assets. Insurance companies soon learned how fire
sprinklers significantly reduced their risk of loss when
insuring millions of dollars of business assets. It was
these insurance companies looking to reduce their
liability exposure that drove the support and eventual
legislation of fire sprinkler requirements in commercial
buildings and soon to be residential buildings as well.
Be ahead of the game!
Your home is no different. What do you have
in your home that insurance cannot replace?
