Home Fire Sprinkler Week: Fire Sprinklers are Smart and Green

Today’s Theme: Fire Sprinklers are Smart and Green

The Ridge VFD and the Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC) want to let you know that home fire sprinklers are good for the environment. According to a groundbreaking joint research project from FM Global and HFSC on the environmental impact of fires, automatic fire sprinklers can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 98%, reduce fire damage by up to 97%, reduce water usage to fight a home fire by as much as 91%, and reduce water pollution. In a fire, sprinklers quickly control flames, heat, and smoke. Any water damage from the sprinkler will typically be much less severe than the damage caused by water from firefighting hose lines. With sprinklers, water flow is 10-26 gallons of water per minute, about 1/10th of fire hoses.

Your smart home can be a lot smarter. Ask for home fire sprinklers.
