Adopt the latest model building and fire codes, which include fire sprinkler requirements for homes and businesses. Removing fire sprinkler sections from the model codes has unintended consequences: WEAKENED ISO RATING and REDUCED FLOOR DAMAGE REIMBURSEMENT. The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will not reimburse your citizens at 100% if you adopt a model code with sections of the code deleted.
Protect your community from fires and floods. Adopt the latest national code, including the fire sprinkler requirement, to allow 100% coverage if there is a flood in your community. Homes protected with fire sprinklers safeguard citizens and firefighters.
