It typically takes fire departments 9-12 minutes after a fire has started to arrive. By then firefighters will have to use high pressure hoses, applying water at 125 gallons per minute. The home may be lost and the family displaced.
Fire sprinklers work so fast that they often put out a fire before the fire department arrives.
In Scottsdale, AZ, a 15-year study of home fire sprinklers showed that the average loss per sprinklered fire incident was $2,166 compared to more than $45,000 for unsprinklered homes.
