Protect your family and your home

Safety, protection and peace of mind.   

Did you know, roughly 85% of all civilian fire deaths occur in their home? Most people don't realize they can use the same life-saving technology that has been around for more than a century in commercial, idustrial and public buildings. Your new fire sprinkler safety system reacts so quickly that it can dramatically reduce the heat, flames and smoke produced by a fire.

Residential fire sprinkler systems are not only a wise investment in protecting your family and your home, on Long Island, they're becoming a requirement. These systems must be installed and mainteined by a professional certified in fire sprinkler systems installation.

Facts about Residential Fire Sprinkler Systems:

  • 85% of all U.S. fire deaths occur in the home.
  • Home fire sprinklers can control and may even extinguish a fire in less time than it would take the fire department to arrive on the scene.
  • Only the sprinkler closest to the fire will activate, spraying water directly on the fire. In 84% of home fires where the sprinklers operate, just one sprinkler operates.
  • If you have a fire in your home, the risk of dying is cut by about one-third when smoke alarms are present (or about half if the smoke alarms are working), while automatic fire sprinkler systems cut the risk of dying by about 80%.
  • In a home with sprinklers, the average property loss per fire is cut by about 70% (compared to fires where sprinklers are not present.)
