NFPA US Experience with Sprinklers.pdf

This report (by NFPA) examines sprinkler presence, reliability, effectiveness and impact in structure fires overall and in home fires specifically. Rates of casualties per 1000 reported fires are shown for properties with sprinklers vs. those with no automatic extinguishing systems (AES.) Reasons for the rare cases of sprinkler failure and ineffectiveness are also discussed.
