Sprinkler Saves Stats

Fire sprinklers are key to saving lives as well as reducing significant property losses due to fire events.  “Sprinkler Saves” are events where a properly functioning sprinkler system saved lives and/or prevented excessive fire damage.  In Raleigh, sprinkler systems are primarily installed in commercial businesses, apartment complexes, hotels, and similar establishments.
