NFPA Requires Sprinklers In Nursing Homes, Nightclubs

September 1, 2005
The Standards Council of the National Fire Protection Association issued key safety codes that will require fire sprinklers in all nursing homes, new construction one-and two-family dwellings, and in all new construction nightclubs and like facilities. Existing like facilities with capacities over 100 also will meet the requirement. NFPA President James M. Shannon called the code provision “a milestone in fire protection.” Visit www.nfpa.org for further information.
