Sprinklers save lives. AFP protecting your home and family.
Fire sprinkler systems provide the ultimate protection from fire to help save lives & property. Nationwide, more than 4,000 people die in fires each year. 80% in house fires.
Usually, a residential fire sprinkler system can extinguish a fire in less than one minute. A misconception about residential fire sprinkler systems is that they can activate or leak for no reason. The only reason a sprinkler will activate is if it were accidentally damaged or vandalized.
Each system is pressure tested up to 200PSI for at least two hours. It is highly unlikely that a system will accidentally discharge. Another myth is that all of the sprinklers will go off in the entire house at once. This is not true. The only sprinkler heads that will be activated are the ones that are heat activated because of a fire. (usually one or two sprinkler heads)
