ESC Chosen to Install Sprinkler Fire Suppression in New Lebanon FD | #ESC_LLC #FireSprinkler #SprinklerSaves #FireProtection #Construction | The need for automatic sprinklers for fire suppression is key to saving lives and property. The following statistical data comes directly from the National Fire Protection Association of Quincy, Mass. https://wp.me/p97JNV-1Ct
- The civilian fire death rate of 0.8 per 1,000 reported fires was 87% lower in properties with sprinklers than in properties with no AES.
- The civilian injury rate of 23 per 1,000 reported fires was 27% lower in properties with sprinklers than in properties with no AES.
- Many injuries occurred in fires that were too small to activate the sprinkler or in the first moments of a fire before the sprinkler operated.
- The average firefighter fireground injury rate of 20 per 1,000 reported fires was 67% lower where sprinklers were present than in fires with no AES.
Sprinklers are a valuable addition to any property, even that of a new 21,000 square foot, $5,822,000.00 fire station in New Lebanon, Ohio.
“We’ve been chosen to install a new automatic fire sprinkler system in the New Lebanon, Ohio, fire station,” says John Larkin, Senior Partner with Electronic Systems Consultants LLC (ESC) of Columbus, Ohio. “We were awarded this contract by Graybach Construction (located in Cincinnati, Ohio).
According to Larkin, there are 190 sprinkler heads with a single riser. The work is in process at this time. Please enjoy a few photos of the project in an early phase:
