The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) has promoted research, development, testing and demonstrations of residential fire sprinklers for more than 30 years. The research has indisputably demonstrated that residential fire sprinklers can:
- Save the lives of building occupants.
- Save the lives of firefighters called to respond to a home fire.
- Significantly reduce the risk of premature building collapse to firefighters by lightweight construction components when they are involved in a fire.
- Substantially reduce property loss caused by a fire.
The time has come to use this affordable, simple and effective technology to save lives and property where it matters most — in our homes.
