Since early 1985 the Pleasantview, Illinois Fire Protection District has been tracking [link to article] sprinkler saves in a unique way. With the help of a local sprinkler contractor they’ve built what they call a “sprinkler tree” that is displayed outside of the fire protection bureau’s office (pictured: Fire Marshal Dan Tholotowsky (front) and Deputy Fire Marshal Art D’Andrea (back) of the Pleasantview Fire Protection District (IL) and Rich Ray (center) of Cybor Fire Protection.

The celebrated 50th addition to the sprinkler tree occurred at Best-Way Refinishing in Hodgkins. Sprinklers controlled a fire that began in paint spray booth filters during process work.”
