NM fire stations finally get fire sprinklers

FARMINGTON, N.M. — Five of the six Farmington fire stations, despite advocating for sprinkler systems as one of the No. 1 prevention tools in fire safety, are not following their own advice.

"We preach fire sprinklers safety to the public," Fire Chief Terry Page said. "It's time we stopped being hypocritical and practice what we preach. To the best of our knowledge, nobody has ever died from a fire in a sprinkler building across the United States."
