Sprinkler opponents have asked state lawmakers to prohibit legislating safety code provisions regarding sprinklers. In reality, anti-sprinkler bills would:
Weaken public safety
Ignore the proven impact of home fire sprinklers
Establish a precedent putting politics above proven safety technology
Disregard the long established consensus code process
Support Fire Sprinklers
The NFPA, FEMA's USFA, the South Carolina Fire Marshal, and the Charleston Fire Department urge you to contact your state legislator as soon as possible and express your support for the proven life safety benefits of fire sprinklers.
