Properly installed and maintained automatic fire sprinkler systems help save lives. Because fire sprinkler systems react so quickly, they can dramatically reduce the heat, flames, and smoke produced in a fire. And they are proven to protect the environment.
*Research from FM Global and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition on the environmental impact of fires finds automatic fire sprinklers can:
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 98%
- Reuce fire damage by up to 97%
- Reduce water usage to fight a home fire by as much as 91%
- Reduce water pollution
