There is clear evidence that sprinklers can be effective in rapidly controlling and stopping the spread of fires. We are encouraging the use of sprinkler systems in domestic and non-domestic (Commercial) premises.


Sprinklers protect life, reducing the economic and environmental cost of fire in any building they are installed in.

We believe more focus should be directed to properties where the most significant impacts can be made. This includes:

  • schools
  • premises in rural or isolated areas
  • residential care homes
  • domestic premises housing the most vulnerable.

Sprinklers can:

  • reduce fire deaths and fire-related injuries
  • reduce the risk to operational crews
  • protect property and heritage
  • reduce the effects of arson
  • reduce the environmental impact of fire
  • reduce the cost and disruption to the community and business.
