NYSAR launches Call for Action and campaign against fire sprinkler mandate

Feb 02, 2015
New York State regulators are considering a measure that will require the installation of fire sprinklers in all new one- and two-family homes and townhomes built in New York.  NYSAR supports fire sprinklers and consumer education about the benefits of a sprinkler system but is opposed to mandating their installation.  Last week, NYSAR launched an all-member Call for Action opposing the proposed mandate.  Take action in opposition to this proposal by clicking here.

NYSAR also launched media campaign including a radio commercial, newspaper ads and a website in opposition to this mandate on Monday, February 2. A link to our radio commercial and more information including fire sprinkler facts and poll results can be found at
