The Fruitland City council has now passed an ordinance requiring sprinkler systems in all multi-family duplex structures connected to city water.
Just so everyone doesn't go off the deep end here, it is important to realize that sprinkler systems DO NOT SAVE LIVES. They save PROPERTY. True, a sprinkler system MAY put out a fire that might end up killing a person, but standing under a sprinkler in a fire will not save your butt.
Just something to keep in mind... smoke detectors save lives, sprinkler systems save PROPERTY.
