Residential Sprinklers

When properly maintained, automatic fire sprinklers are extremely reliable. Automatic sprinkler systems are recognized as the most reliable of all fire protection devices in controlling or extinguishing a fire at an early stage. The presence of an automatic sprinkler system enhances life safety of building occupants and reduces the loss of property.  The Residential Fire Sprinkler Resale Inspection requirement was implemented to maintain the reliability of fire protection systems installed in Woodland homes to meet minimum fire and life-safety regulations.
