PACHECO, Calif.—On Jan. 1 this year, California joined Pennsylvania in becoming the first states in the nation to require the installation of automatic fire sprinkler systems in new one- and two-family homes.
YARMOUTH, Maine—It probably comes as as little surprise that folks who do fire installation as part of their business value training. A recent SSN poll showed that they also think going the extra mile with high-level training, like NICET, is also important.
Tom Hammerberg, president and executive director of the Automatic Fire Alarm Association said he found the results encouraging. “It’s good to see there are number of people who feel training is important, because it very much is,” he said.
