920 documented sprinkler saves between 2004 and 2016 in Minnesota alone!
Recently, we received an email from Jon Nisja, a Supervisor at the Minnesota State Fire Marshal Division, that we were excited to share with you. 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."
What 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. Far too many lives are taken each year due to preventable fires. 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.
Take a look at 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. VFP employees are proud of the work we do every day and we hope that more people continue to realize the benefits of fire sprinklers. Fire sprinklers save lives.
