Seattlepi.com informs us of an extension for bar and nightclub owners to retrofit their businesses with fire sprinklers. From the article;
A bill giving nightclub owners throughout the state a two-year deadline extension for installing costly fire suppression systems passed this year’s Legislature.”
While I don’t disagree that retrofiting a building with fire sprinklers can be a financial burden the benefits out-weigh the costs. Just ask the guy whose business has burned down and now has to start from scratch. Not to mention most insurance companies offer discounts for sprinklered buildings.
