Encouraging the voluntary installation of fire sprinkler systems in residences.

Posted: February 9, 2009
Bill Version: CSHCR 1(L&C)
Status: Legis Resolve 21 : 2009-06-08

Residential fire sprinkler systems are known to save lives and prevent millions of dollars in property loss. HCR1 encourages the State agencies and the Insurance industry to provide graduated incentives for partial and full residential sprinkler coverage. It asks that the Fire Marshal come up with a program that would rate residences based on sprinkler coverage within the home. This program would allow home owners to install partial system over known hot spots such as cooking areas and furnace areas and still get some credit. It also asks that The Department of Labor and Workforce Development come up with a program to qualify plumbers to install these systems and asks the insurance industry to recognize this program and provide insurance discounts based on the Fire Marshal's program.
