The Tennessee Fire Sprinkler Coalition was formed to bring the fire service and other stakeholders together for the purpose of keeping the home fire sprinkler requirement in the Tennessee code, to assist local jurisdictions in adopting ordinances, and to participate in the legislative process to stop anti-sprinkler legislation. Our goal is to increase awareness of the power of fire and the home fire death problem; emphasizing the role that the home fire sprinkler requirement plays in saving lives and preventing injuries in Tennessee.

State Legislators Nix Residential Sprinkler Requirement
In 2015, the Senate Commerce Committee held a hearing on proposed legislation that would prohibit the requirement of fire sprinklers in townhomes by any local or statewide adopted building codes. The legislation was passed and signed by the governor that year. To help prevent further erosion of fire sprinkler requirements in Tennessee, join the coalition.
