In October, State Law was changed to require fire sprinklers in all new homes larger than 4,500 square feet. Eighty-five percent of all fire deaths occur in homes, according to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA). Automatic fire sprinklers cut the risk of dying in a house fire by 80 percent. Yet, less than 5 percent of all homes, including multi-unit homes, have sprinklers. Should all homes have sprinkler systems?
The City of Edina is interested in what you think about residential fire sprinklers.
