NEW HOME FIRE SPRINKLER REQUIREMENTS - NH New Home Fire Sprinkler Requirements

National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) President Jim Shannon recently praised the work of fire officials and fire safety advocates after California, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania adopted the 2009 edition of the International Residential Code (IRC) which requires home fire sprinklers in all new one- and two-family homes.

"The nation's fire service and other fire safety advocates deserve tremendous recognition for their efforts to bring safety home by working to get sprinklers in every community," Shannon said.

California's measure to install sprinklers in all new one- and two-family homes and townhouses is effective January 1, 2011. New Hampshire's adoption is effective on April 1, 2012.  Pennsylvania requires the installation of sprinkler systems in all new townhouses effective January 1, 2010, and in all new one- and two-family homes effective January 1, 2011.

"These are significant steps forward in our efforts to eradicate the home fire death problem by requiring home fire sprinklers in new homes," said Shannon. "We are hopeful their actions will lead to more states doing the same in order to save lives from fire."

Approximately 3,000 people a year die in home fires, according to the NFPA. When fire sprinklers are present, the chances of dying in a home fire decrease by about 80 percent. Home fire sprinklers control heat, smoke, and flames allowing occupants time to escape and giving firefighters a safer environment.

In 2009, NFPA launched the Fire Sprinkler Initiative, a nationwide effort to mandate the use of home fire sprinklers. The site provides research, facts, an interactive blog, and other resources for individuals interested in passing similar sprinkler requirements in their communities.

Testimonials
I saved over $300 over my old agent! Try this agency today for second opinion! I was amazed at the difference in cost, even though they more than doubled my protection! I found agency online while searching for a more local agent since I moved and I was impressed by their site. The agent (Kevin) quoted me initially via e-mail (as I didn't want to speak to another insurance person). He answered all my questions via e-mail, so I called the agency to go over my coverage. What a great experience - he went over everything in the detail and told me by putting my auto & home with the same company I could save additional money. He walked me through a 20 point checklist that helped identify coverage and discounts I was missing, and even advised me on some non-insurance ways to help protect myself and our house. I saved over $300 & was even able to add umbrella to add over $1000000 to my protection, all for less than I was paying before. My experience with this agency has proven to me that not all agents are created equal. Kevin and his staff also gave us a free review ...

Kevin and his staff also gave us a free review on our life insurance since it has been a while since we had review and recommended we have a financial review as well. He didn't "sell" us anything, instead he just pointed out what we may want to consider - no pressure and no hassles. I highly highly recomend sullivan insurance & financial and I have already set up my next appointment to go over my life insurance and go over my 401K with their financial planner. I am going to have Kevin write my whole family.
