PUBLIC CALL FOR ACTION
Take Action Now to oppose a mandate being considered by the New York State Fire Prevention and Building Code Council that will require the installation of fire sprinklers in all new one and two-family homes and townhomes in New York.
The decision to install fire sprinklers should be a consumer choice. Mandating sprinklers will unquestionably increase the price of building, owning and maintaining a home and will therefore negatively impact the New York housing market.
Please consider sending the letter at the link above the New York State Fire Prevention and Building Code Council, Secretary of State Perales and Governor Cuomo and tell them to remove the fire sprinkler mandate from the 2015 International Construction Code currently under consideration.
