Why Homes Need Fire Sprinklers

Fire Sprinklers Protect Your Home and Your Family

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.

Including fire sprinklers in your new home is a great idea that can save your family members’ lives. But it does raise many questions. In this section you will find Fire Sprinkler Facts, answers to Frequently Asked Questions, and read True Life Stories. You can also read about REALTORS® that are big fans of home fire sprinklers in the NAR Testimonial section.

You will also find some entertaining and informative videos about a Home Fire Timeline, Protecting What You Value Most, Lifesaving Benefits of Home Fire Sprinklers and the History of Fire Sprinklers. You can take a tour of The HFSC Virtual Sprinklered House, see A Tale of Two Families and download the Future of Fire Safety Here Today brochure.
