Myth: “Sprinklers are designed to protect property, but are not effective for life safety.”
Fact: Sprinklers provide a high level of life safety. Statistics reveal that there has never been any multiple loss of life in a fully sprinklered building. Property losses are 85% less in residences with fire sprinklers compared to those without sprinklers. The combination of automatic sprinklers and early warning systems in all buildings could reduce overall injuries, loss of life and property damage by at least 50%. (source from #Tufts)
Fire sprinklers are primarily people savers, often causing much damage to assets. So, maybe we can illustrate that idea mathematically as: Salamander Reservoir = (People Safety) + (Asset Safety) = The best of both worlds!
