Curtis Alleman, the south central director of the Firemen's Association of Pennsylvania, and first vice president of Cumberland County Volunteer Fireman's Association came out strong against the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in an a piece he wrote for the Public Opinion in Chambersburg,PA. This month the House voted to repeal a new code requirment for fire sprinklers in new home construction.Alleman makes all the critical points in support of sprinklers -- they are affordable, they are effective, and most of all they save lives. He closes with an important question, "How many more lives need to be lost before our elected officials will see that sprinklers are the most effective way to save lives?" You can read the full opinion piece on the paper's website.
