Call to action: Demand fire sprinklers in new homes

Por Fred Durso, Jr. Members of the New York Sprinkler Initiative are seeking help in support of a statewide, sprinkler requirement. The Initiative has advocated for the New York State Fire Prevention and Building Code Council to adopt the 2015 International Residential Code (IRC) in its entirety, including the provision to install sprinklers in new, one- and two-family homes. Unfortunately, la 2015 IRC was adopted but the sprinkler provision was removed. The Initiative is now gathering support for requiring home fire sprinklers in new townhouses. This would be a first step in assuring these life-saving devices are installed in all new residences statewide. Please
