California Fire Sprinkler Coalition
Fires in the home pose one of the biggest threats to the people of your community. Over 350,000 home fires occur every year in this country and more than 2,500 people a year die in home fires. Home fire sprinklers are a proven way to protect lives and property against fires at home.
These life-saving systems respond quickly and effectively to the presence of a nearby fire. When sprinklers are present, they save lives. Model safety codes now require the use of home fire sprinklers in new one- and two-family homes.
These requirements offer the highest level of safety to protect the people of your community.
- If you have a reported fire in your home, the risk of dying decreases by about 80 percent when sprinklers are present.
- People in homes with sprinklers are protected against significant property loss—sprinklers reduce the average property loss by 71 percent per fire.
