|Why Bother with Sprinklers???
The short answer is that they SAVE LIVES!
Sprinklers reduce the number of serious burns,
injury cases, and the amount of damage caused
by house fires. The latest research from the
American National Fire Protection Association
-The death-per-fire rate is dramatically reduced when
sprinklers are present.
-Property damage is reduced from an average of $17,000 per
fire down to $4,000.
-When sprinklers are installed, subsequent fires are almost
always contained in one room, whereas in homes without
sprinklers, it spreads to other rooms in 75% of the cases.
-Firefighters take time to arrive after a fire has started and
end up using far more water to put out the fire, which itself
causes damage — so sprinklers actually work to reduce the
risk to lives and property
