Fire Sprinkler Installation: What’s leaving and what’s coming

Two things to know about Fire Sprinkler installation:

  1. The period is almost over allowing plumbers to install fire sprinklers. AB 433 from 2013 allowed C-36 plumbers to install fire sprinklers in one- or 2-family dwellings until December 31, 2016.  As of Jan 1, 2017, only C-16 Fire Protection Contractors can install fire sprinklers, period.
  2. Certification requirements for Automatic Fire Extinguishing Systems is still on the way.  The State Fire Marshal will have another 15 Day public comment period in January.  C-16s and GCs who use C-16s should take a look at the almost-finished-product at http://tinyurl.com/jmjshcz
