Fayette Co. Votes to Require Residential Sprinklers
FTT 11-29-2007
With a 14-5 Tuesday night vote, Fayette County became the 2nd Tennessee county to require fire sprinklers in all new one- and two-family dwellings.  The City of Piperton, located in Fayette County, recently enacted similar legislation.

Cheatham County, following four of it's municipalities, passed the requirement in 2006.

County commissioners cited the ability to effectively "freeze" fire protection concerns at their current level by ensuring that all homes constructed after April 1, 2008, will have their own fire protection built-in.  The requirement focuses only on new construction, not requiring existing homes or structures to retrofit the systems.

Note from FTT:  We know how hard the Fayette County Team has worked to make this a reality... Congratulations on a job well done!  Your efforts will save lives for years to come.
