In an effort to cut the cost of home fire sprinkler installations, the Alamance County Inspections Department in North Carolina is now offering a discount. 


Through its new Fire Sprinkler Incentive Program, the county is discounting the cost of a new home permit by 50 percent if fire sprinklers are installed. Moreover, the county is waiving all fees charged for the plan review or fire sprinkler permit. According to a news release on the new incentive:



Congratulations to Alamance County for initiating an ingenious discount aimed at increasing the use of home fire sprinklers.  If you'd like more information on this incentive, please contact Robert Key, the inspections department director. Perhaps you can convince your town to introduce a similar discount.
