Anti-sprinkler legislation

 

Anti-sprinkler legislation

Some opponents of home fire sprinklers waste no time trying to convince some state lawmakers to introduce bills that would prohibit jurisdictions from including one- and two-family dwelling fire sprinkler requirements in the adopted codes.

Act now in support of home fire sprinklers
Here's how you can help!
