Arson fires, Protection of our kids, and the Importance of the facilities to our communities are reasons why Codes now require ALL new school buildings, and schools that have significant modifications to be fire sprinklered.
They work. It is better to have a small fire automatically controlled, than to have lives at risk, and large fire damage to repair.
Livermore has had a fire sprinkler ordinance since 1985.
How many of our schools have fire sprinklers?
