Chief Bruce Kline of the Lady's Island Saint Helena's Fire District spoke at today's home fire sprinkler summit about the status of requirements for home sprinklers in South Carolina. The South Carolina Building Code Council had adopted the 2009 IRC with an effective date of January 1, 2011, but that requirement was subsequently delayed until 2014 by legislative action. Chief Kline says that in hindsight, the delay was beneficial to his state's sprinkler efforts.
