Fire Sprinklers for residential occupancies is a hot topic right now. The ICC (International Codes Council) will meet later this month to
hear arguments for and against vote on a requirement for sprinklers in all residences. People are talking about it all over the internet. Watch for more information on this topic.
UPDATE: Some communities are taking matters into their own hands.
UPDATE: Here’s a great article on the ICC meeting this may. The article is written by Billy Goldfedder who looks, by his photo, to be a member of one of our Nation’s finest professions. He explains that this isn’t just a debate. A vote will actually take place that will put a residential fire sprinkler requirement in the IBC (International Building Code). [firehouse.com]
