Fire sprinklers are highly reliable and effective
elements of total system designs for fire protection in buildings.
They save lives and property, producing large reductions in the number of deaths
per thousand fires, in average direct property damage per fire,
and especially in the likelihood of a fire with large loss of life or large property
loss. Sprinklers are reliable and effective, according to a
National Fire Protection Association Fire Analysis and Research
Division report entitled “US Experience With Sprinklers, June 2013.”
