Fire Sprinklers Save Lives (And This Graphic Proves It)!
Last week we were fortunate to receive an email from Jon Nisja, a Supervisor at the Minnesota State Fire Marshal Division. In his email, Jon wrote the following:
"All too often we in the fire service focus on the negative (how much was lost; how much was damaged, etc.). Each of these sprinkler saves represents someone's building being saved, someone's business being protected, someone's life being spared, someone's personal property not being destroyed, or responding firefighters not being placed at a higher risk."
This resonated deeply with us and was an excellent reminder that what we do is more than just install fire sprinklers...we save lives! Being in the fire safety business, we are well aware of the tragedies that can result from an unexpected fire. Fire sprinklers, while commonly overlooked, can extinguish a fire by the time fire crews even have a chance to arrive on scene. They save lives and property every single day across the world.
Check out the graphic showing the sprinkler saves for the past 13 years throughout the state of Minnesota alone! There have been 920 documented sprinkler saves between 2004 and 2016, or about one every five days. Our company takes pride in knowing that the work we do every single day has a positive impact not only in Minnesota, but across the world! Fire sprinklers save lives.
