Sprinkler Fitters Local 704
Fire Sprinklers Saves Lives and Property. The main objective for fire sprinklers is life safety. One of the earliest documented automatic sprinkler systems dates back to 1723 where Ambrose Godfrey used gunpowder to release a tank of extinguishing fluid. Throughout the years improvements have been made to the automatic sprinkler and its systems.
Until the early 1940’s, sprinkler systems were used to primarily protect commercial buildings. Since then their uses have been expanded to protect lives in hospitals, office buildings, schools and apartment buildings. Today you can find automatic sprinkler systems in the heaviest of industrial buildings down to the single family home.
