Fire Sprinklers

Fire Sprinklers Save Lives

Did You Know?
  • Sprinklers rarely leak.
  • Only the sprinkler head affected by the fire will activate.
  • Sprinkler heads are activated by heat only. Smoke without heat will not cause a sprinkler to activate.
  • Sprinklers cause less damage than the fire itself. A sprinkler will control a fire in its early stages and will use considerably less water than the Fire Department would.
  • Sprinklers have been in use since the late eighteen hundreds to protect lives and property.
The City of Cottonwood has a sprinkler ordinance in place to protect lives and property in new residential and commercial construction. Please contact the Fire Prevention Division for information on maintenance of your system.
