Read what John Otto has to say about mandated fire sprinkler laws. As a installer of fire sprinklers, I nor the company I work for, are interested in installing fire sprinklers in homes. The  profit margin is too small. The competition too great. The price of sprinklering homes is nominal. What I am for is the saving of lives not only of our loved ones, but firemen. John Otto's reasoning


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.
