Residetial Sprinklers

A Growing Number of Communities Promote Home Fire Sprinklers

The fire loss in this country in residential occupancies is alarming. Manual firefighting methods are not the answer. The way to attack the problem is to limit the fire growth where it occurs in dwellings. We have the technology to do that.

Residential Automatic Sprinkler Systems. Ordinance No. 745; Adopted May 28, 1969; by the San Clemente, California City Council

Proposition 13 was a major factor in promoting the ordinance. There is also a shift within the fire service toward more fire prevention and less suppression emphasis. San Clemente and Corte Madera, California were some of the first communities in the United States to enact a home sprinkler ordinance. Other communities that have initiated or plan to initiate residential sprinkler ordinances include:

  • Livermore, California
  • Montgomery County, MD
  • Long Grove, Illinois
  • Chapel Hill, North Carolina
  • Germantown, Tennessee
  • Scottsdale, Arizona
  • Altamonte Springs, Florida
