Home Fire Sprinkler Week Banner

As the world continues to deal with the ongoing demands of COVID-19, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition are taking Home Fire Sprinkler Week virtual.

This year, Home Fire Sprinkler Week will take place May 16-22. Each day will have a different theme and videos you can access:

Home fire sprinklers protect the lives of residents and firefighters by keeping fires small and by giving residents more time to escape a fire. Homeowners can install these in new or existing homes.

If you have any questions about home fire sprinklers, join the conversation on social media during Home Fire Sprinkler week using the hashtag #HomeFireSprinklerWeek2021. You can also visit:

Why should I install a home fire sprinkler system?

Fires in the home pose one of the biggest threats to the people of your community. Home fire sprinklers are a proven way to protect lives and property against fires at home. The technology responds quickly to reduce the heat, flames, and smoke from a fire, giving families valuable time to get to safety.

Do fire sprinklers reduce property damage?

People in homes with sprinklers are protected against significant property loss—sprinklers reduce direct property damage by about 70 percent per fire.

Do all fire sprinklers activate when there is a fire?

Roughly 85 percent of the time, just one sprinkler operates during a fire.

Are home fire sprinklers mandatory in new homes?

No, however they keep fires small by reducing heat, flames and smoke produced in a fire.

How much does it cost to install home fire sprinklers?

A home fire sprinkler system can easily be installed in a new home. A request can be made to a home builder when choosing your home design, and the cost is approximately $2.00/ft2.
