Sprinklers Save Lives – A Maryland Story
Some Maryland lawmakers want to gut the state’s mandatory residential sprinkler law. It’s an enormous step backwards that will cost lives. As firefighters, we need to let the delegates and senators know what we know about sprinklers. They need to understand that a vote for House Bill 19 means people will be injured and die in homes that should have been sprinklered.

NFFF Executive Director Ron Siarnicki is urging firefighters to join him at the State House in Annapolis tomorrow (Tuesday, February 16) at 1:00 in Committee Room 251. Chief Siarnicki says, “The more firefighters who turn out and say ‘keep this law as it is currently written’ the more likely our representatives are to listen.
