A policy adviser underscores methods for getting home fire sprinklers on the radar of legislators and elected officials
While we are making headway in our efforts to get local governments to mandate the installation of residential sprinklers in all new one- and two-family homes, sprinkler opponents are pushing legislation that would restrict a community’s ability to make its own decision about model safety codes for new construction. These bills would prevent communities from implementing any new sprinkler mandates in one- and two-family homes, and if they become law, the lives of our friends, families, and communities will be at risk. We need your help to make sure these bills do not pass. Use the resources in the sidebar to help your elected officials know that you do not support any statewide effort to prevent requirements for home fire sprinklers.
