Fire Sprinklers

Fire sprinklers are an essential fire suppression tool, helping douse or dampen flames while firefighters are still en route to the scene. The FireRescue1 fire sprinklers resource page offers news about fire sprinklers, like the battles between public safety and the construction industry over their installation in new construction, local work to retrofit older buildings with sprinklers, and fire incidents that were impacted by the presence or lack of fire sprinklers; plus information about how fire officers can advocate for fire sprinklers in their areas.
