Do you think the city should require fire sprinklers in all new single-family homes?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on November 2, 2008
“No. I don’t think they should require them to spend the extra money. I think it should be up to the person paying for the home.”
“As someone who’s had a fire in his home, I would give a big yes to that. It would have really saved me a lot of money, and I wouldn’t have had to move.”
“For new housing, I don’t see a problem with it. They already have so many requirements, why not throw in another one if it could save some lives?”
“Yes. It’s important for families’ safety. You can’t always hear the fire alarm, so at least they can kick in as a backup.”
