We chatted with Robert Nolan, deputy chief and fire marshal for Las Vegas Fire and Rescue, about a landmark ordinance there to start fire sprinklering its new homes. Rather surprisingly, he explains how he worked with the local homebuilding industry to secure the ordinance.
Read the story in the latest edition of NFPA's Fire Sprinkler Initiative newsletter. You'll also find information on:
- a homebuilder who is sprinklering 15,000 new homes
- a state experiencing a 40 percent increase in fire fatalities over last year
- where fire sprinklers are and aren't required in homes, per NFPA 13D
