Fire Sprinklers Not Needed
Latest

Excessive water from fire sprinklers after they extinguish a fire may cause mold, excessive fire from your home burning may cause death. Seriously, citing mold as a reason not to retrofit a 252 unit high rise apartment complex is silly.(built in 1969, mold has already reared it's ugly head, no doubt). In his defense, he is the president of the board of said complex, and he is just voicing his opinion, not protecting his pocket, it is not the money, fire sprinklers just aren't needed. In my humble opinion (for what it is worth) fire seems more frightening. Fire kills, mold can be abated.

Which would you rather pay? The fire at the Rotonics Manufacturing Plant in Caldwell Tuesday  did $3,000,000 of damage including the building and contents. The 21,250 square foot structure would have cost an estimated  $30,000 to install automatic fire sprinklers. Also the fire sprinkler system would have paid for itself in insurance  premiums. Caldwell Fire Marshal Doug Brown said If the Rotonics building had had fire sprinkler protection, the chances are very good that the company would be back in production today, and all their employees would be back to work.
