Fire Smarts, in partnership with Telgian, is providing a series of informative training webinars taught by Telgian fire protection experts who will educate on specific areas of fire protection systems. This Residential Fire Sprinklers webinar will provide a basic understanding of NFPA 13R Standard for the Installation of Sprinklers in Low-Rise Residential Occupancies, NFPA 13D Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One- and Two-Family Dwellings and the International Residential Code Section P2904. The scope and general application of each document will be reviewed.
With the increase of multi-unit housing and the International Residential Code update requiring fire sprinklers in all residential structures, the use of residential fire sprinklers is rapidly growing. The protection of residential occupancies is unique with distinct requirements for the use and location of sprinklers.
