According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), a fire department responds to a fire every 23 seconds. In 2015, more than 1.3 million fires were reported with property damages topping $14.3 million. There’s no question, fire sprinkler systems will save you money in case of a fire.
Here’s another statistic to wrap your head around. Nationwide, fires cause nearly 16,000 civilian injuries and more than 4,000 deaths each year.
Dollars and Sense
Think for a minute about a person you care about. What dollar value would you associate with that person’s life? Ask anyone who’s been touched by the devastation of a fire-related death and they’ll tell you they’d give all the money in the world to have their loved one back.

According to the American Fire Sprinkler Association (AFSA), fire sprinkler system installation reduces the risk of dying by approximately 80 percent. Systems achieve this by responding to a fire while it’s still small. When fire sprinkler systems either extinguish the fire or control its spread until firefighters arrive on the scene, property damage is reduced and human lives are spared.
