Comentario: Opponentsargument that new homes are safer holds no weight

Por Fred Durso, Jr. In my last post, I posed the question, “When do new homes become old homes?” In this post, I continue analyzing the sprinkler opponent’s argument that fire sprinklers need not be required in new homes because new homes are safer from fire than old homes. People who make this claim point to improved electrical wiring and circuits; updated furnaces and appliances; improved vertical and horizontal fire separations; larger windows, especially provided in basements with bedrooms; and the installation of smoke alarms. It is true that these improvements do help reduce some causes of home fires and some avenues of fire
