People have the greatest risk Of dying from a fire when they are in their homes- the one place that you spend most of your time and keep all of your prized possessions. Home fire sprinklers are a crucial, life-saving technology, since sprinklers can reduce the risk of dying from home fires by 85 percent. It seems all too obvious that your home should be equipped with the technology to protect you in the event that a fire does occur. Unfortunately, your Arizona Home Is Not Required To Have A Fire Sprinkler Installed, Resulting In A Large Population Of Vulnerable Arizona Residents.
