State Fire Marshal - How Home Sprinklers Work

Home fire sprinklers operate individually, in response
to the high temperature of a fire.

  • Home fire sprinklers save lives.
  • Sprinklers activate by high heat only, not from smoke or cooking vapors.
  • Sprinklers operate individually, in response to the high temperature of a fire.
  • Sprinklers provide safe and reliable protection of lives and property.
  • Sprinklers do not significantly increase the cost of a new home and add value.
