I think that all homes are in need for sprinklers because not only could it save your life but could also save you money and your house. So requesting that construction workers implement them into homes and offices, in my opinion should become an absolute must.

"When you add the alleged savings listed by NRDC: Wouldn’t it be more than enough to cover the installation of a fire sprinkler system?"

From my perspective, the issue isn't that the costs aren't justified but the advantages are not being pushed by the primary point of contact for the buyer - the home builder themselves! Either consumers need to demand sprinkler systems or the home builders need to find a way to incorporate them as a value-add feature in their construction. Too often it is perceived as as a sunk cost, not an opportunity.

Great post.
