NFPA's Standards Council recently issued the 2016 edition of NFPA 13D, Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One- and Two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes. It's already time to consider the next edition of the standard! NFPA is currently accepting public input for the next edition of NFPA 13D. If you'd like to see changes made to this standard, please submit your comments by June 29. And check this blog often for updates throughout the standard's revision cycle. As the recently appointed staff liaison to this committee, I plan on keeping you up to date on any important changes.
