Another City Considers Sprinklers in Bars

Iowa City, Iowa is considering an ordinance that would force establishments with alcohol permits to install fire sprinklers. I wrote on this a couple of posts ago about Seattle.

Communities are still reacting to the tragic Rhode Island fire back in ’93 that claimed nearly 100 people. Right or wrong, fair or not, sprinklers save lives. Typically governments are setting this requirement for establishments with occupancies of 100 or more people and give the establishments several years to fulfill the requirment. [dailyiowan.com]
