NJ Sprinkler CoalitionWe are asking sprinkler advocates across North America to take action in support of a crucial piece of legislation.

Both the New Jersey Assembly and Senate have passed the New Home Fire Safety Act, which would require the installation of fire sprinklers in newly constructed one- and two-family homes. The legislation awaits a signature from Governor Chris Christie.

Safety advocates from the Garden State are asking sprinkler advocates from across the country to sign a petition showcasing national support for the bill.

Please show your support by signing this petition. It's quick and easy!

Why is this bill's passage so crucial? Home is where the majority of fire deaths occur in the U.S. Since New Jersey experiences roughly 60 fire deaths and more than $25 million in estimated property damage each year, fire continues to have a devastating impact on the Garden State. Home fire sprinklers are a proven technology to reduce—and eventually eliminate—these devastating losses.

Thank you for your support!
