Edmonton Fire Rescue Services, in partnership with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition, the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition-Canada and The Co-operators, are hosting Home Fire Sprinkler Week from May 19 to 25, 2019.

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

Why should I install a home fire sprinkler?

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.
