Most people don’t realize that 8 out of 10 fire deaths occur in the home. They usually happen at night when you and your family are asleep. Fires are also fast; they can go from a tiny flame to total destruction in as little as three minutes. Fire sprinklers can suppress and often extinguish a fire before the fire department arrives, giving your family time to escape.
For more information about fire sprinklers, visit the National Fire Sprinkler Association.
As of 2005, Ashland City requires all new residential construction to include fire sprinklers.
