NJ_FSIThe New Jersey Assembly is scheduled to vote this week on the New Home Fire Safety Act, which would require fire suppression systems in new one- and two-family homes. Last year, a similar bill requiring the sprinklering of new one- and two-family homes was passed by the Legislature, but it was vetoed by the governor.

Extensive research confirms that sprinklers are cost-effective systems that can reduce fire deaths by 80 percent. If you reside in the Garden State, please contact your local legislator and tell them you support this bill.
