New law requires home buyers in one state to receive information on home fire sprinklers

Blog Post created by Fred Durso Employee on Apr 4, 2016

A law passed in Delaware last year requires builders of one- and two-family homes to offer cost estimates for fire sprinklers to potential buyers. Moreover, the law also requires buyers to receive free, educational material on these devices to help them make an informed decision on whether or not to install these devices.

 

As a means to convince all buyers that sprinklers are a smart decision, the Delaware State Fire Marshal's Office recently produced a free pamphlet to fulfill the state's new requirement. Produced with assistance from the

Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition,

the pamphlet highlights state-specific installation costs, information on insurance discounts, and point-counterpoints of popular sprinkler myths. There's also information on maintenance and upkeep, sprinkler operation, and popular types of sprinkler heads.

 

Helping to promote the information highlighted in the pamphlet is the newly formed

Delaware Fire Sprinkler Coalition,

which aims to eliminate the burdens of home fires in its state.
