Developer Incentives Fact Sheet

NFPA 13D – Life Safety System Video

NFPA 13D is referenced in many building and fire codes. It is intended to prevent injury and life loss. The standard requires at least 10 minutes of sprinkler water on the fire in its initial stage of development. That controls the fire early, giving residents the time to safely escape and the fire department time to respond. A typical home fire will be controlled and may even be extinguished by the time the fire department arrives.

Read the full standard here.

Building New Developments With Home Fire Sprinklers Can Increase Fire Safety for the Entire Community

Resources that might have gone to fighting fires can be focused on Community Risk Reduction (CRR). They can help reduce municipal operating expenses through lowered water demands.

Incentives offered to developers to build with sprinklers can reduce construction costs and increase profitability.

Why New Homes Need Fire Sprinklers Video

Home Fire Sprinklers Protect Residents and First Responders

Sprinklered developments support Community Risk Reduction (CRR) as home fire sprinklers provide superior protection for responders and residents, benefitting the entire community for decades. Unsprinklered new-home fire exposure puts responders at risk from fire, collapse, and health hazards. Each new home built without sprinklers makes the community less safe for all. By protecting new housing stock, existing resources can be directed at high-risk populations and existing unsprinklered structures.

Other Local Officials

In some communities the city planner or planning department handles all aspects of development for the town. In others the city manager, mayor or city council may be involved. Your city planner should be able to let you know who you should work with.
