Residential Fire Sprinklers in All New Homes in N.J.? It Could Happen

Residential Fire Sprinklers in All New Homes in N.J.?  It Could Happen

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by N.J. Assembly Democrats John Wisniewski, Jerry Green, Mila Jasey and Shavonda Sumter requiring the installation of fire suppression systems in newly-constructed single- and two-family homes advanced in the Senate yesterday.

Under the bill (A-1698), known as the “New Home Fire Safety Act,” a certificate of occupancy would not be issued for a new home until a state or local code enforcement agency determines that the home is equipped with a fire suppression system that meets state standards.

“Requiring fire suppression systems in new home construction is a simple, commonsense step that will save lives, limit property damage and reduce insurance costs,” said Wisniewski (D-Middlesex). “They should be as commonplace in home construction as windows and doors.”

“Installing fire safety equipment in newly constructed homes is an important step toward improving public safety,” said Green (D-Union/Middlesex/Somerset). “A change like this can go a long way toward saving the lives of both residents and firefighters.”
