California
Alert: California Contractors & Fitters
    Paulene Norwood, Executive Director of the Sacramento Valley Chapter of the American Fire Sprinkler Association said: “We need your assistance in informing sprinkler contractors and fitters who hold California state required Fitter Licenses to be informed that they are required to complete 30 hours of Cal Fire-OSFM approved courses by June 30, 2021. OSFM is the Office of the State Fire Marshal.
    Norwood continued, “Phone calls I am receiving regarding this from non-members is they were not aware of this requirement and they were not informed. Many are asking, ‘Why are there no notices in supply houses?’”
    Norwood has contacted fire sprinkler suppliers and fabricators asking for their help in getting the word out.  
    She noted that the “…manufacturers and suppliers are a direct line to all contractors and fitters in our area and are a good source to inform them of this requirement through direct contact with them and at your places of business.” 
    Norwood added, “These licensed contractors are your lifeline and must remain in business, and to do so, they must meet all the Cal Fire-OSFM requirements for license holders. No license, no business, closed doors.”
    Following are the regulations from the OSFM website:
  Continuing Education — Certified Fire Sprinkler Fitter shall complete three units of American National Standards Institute/International Association of Continuing Education and Training (ANSI/IACET) accredited continuing education within a three-year period. This requirement is verified by CAL FIRE-OSFM every three years at time of renewal. If proof of completion is not received at time of renewal on the third year of the three-year period, the Certified Fire Sprinkler Fitter shall be required to reapply as a new applicant, pay all associated fees, and pass a written examination.
    The “three units” is the equivalent of 30 hours of class time.
    This is a requirement for renewal of the Fitter License.
    Following are the details from Cal Fire-OSFM on the new deadline for required CEUs for Fitter License holders.  
Note: this is from the “Period of Initial Certification,” not the renewal date.
    Period of Initial Certification requirement (Every 3 years): July 1, 2017-June 30, 2019; July 1, 2019-June 30, 2020.
    First date of renewal with CEU requirement: July 1, 2021, July 1, 2024.
    Second date of renewal with CEU: July 1, 2022, July 1, 2025.
    The Sacramento Valley Chapter of the American Fire Sprinkler Association held approved CAL FIRE-OSFM seminars on November 14, 2019, offering .08 credits towards the stated requirement. The seminar was limited to 100 attendees and was open to members and non-members.
    FPC will try to give notice of future seminars; check fpcmag.com for notices received after press time.
    For more information contact: Paulene Norwood, Executive Director, Sacramento Valley Chapter, American Fire Sprinkler Association, (916) 296-0635.

Home Sprinklers Can Lower Building Costs
    This article was posted August 31, 2020, on www.urbanland.uli.org, and was prepared by the nonprofit Home Fire Sprinkler Coalition (HFSC), a national 501(c)(3) educational organization. HFSC creates and offers neutral and informative material at no cost, primarily focused on new single- and two-family development projects in the U.S. and Canada.
    In many municipalities today, savvy developers are tapping into local incentive programs offered by authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs). Fire sprinkler incentives (sometimes called trade-ups) can generate lower costs and bigger profits when fire sprinklers are installed in one- and two-family home developments. While providing life- and property-safety, incentives also allow building and fire code officials the flexibility to accept alternative solutions to regulatory challenges. While many of these incentives can result in cost savings for the developer, they are ultimately a win-win for the homebuyer, first responders, and the entire community.
    In jurisdictions that do not have codes or ordinances that require fire sprinklers in new-home construction, the AHJ has the ability to offer developers valuable incentives in exchange for installing fire sprinklers. These incentives vary, but include allowing development in areas that cannot otherwise be developed due to terrain or environmental constraints or permitting higher density, or reduce infrastructure and other construction costs. It is important that all stakeholders agree on what incentives are appropriate during the pre-development planning stage.
    While every jurisdiction has its own concerns, zoning needs, and other requirements, typical home fire sprinkler incentives include cost savings such as:
    Additional Units Permitted — Development plans may allow homes to be built closer together.
    Street Main Pipe Sizing May Be Minimized — Public water flow requirements for the development can simply be based on the domestic demand as the additional full fire flow demand required for unsprinklered developments will no longer be necessary.
    Increased Hydrant Spacing — Supply mains may be reduced and hydrant spacing can be increased.
    Street-Width Reduction — Traffic lanes may be narrowed, substantially reducing the amount of pavement in every linear foot of street in the development.
    Longer Dead-End Streets — Dead-end streets may be increased in length, allowing additional building lots to be accessed.
    Tee Turnarounds Permitted — The permitted use of tee turnarounds in sprink­lered developments can create at least one additional lot per cul-de-sac.
    Increased Street Grades and Building Setbacks — Steeper street grades and building locations may be allowed further from where the homes’ access leaves the main road.
    Subdivision Single Access Point — A fully sprinklered subdivision allows for a single public access road. This decreases infrastructure costs and significantly increases the number of single-family dwellings allowed.
    Gated Communities — Gated communities can delay fire department access. A fully sprinklered subdivision provides mitigation for this impact allowing developers to utilize this security option when desired — often a marketing advantage.
    Reduced Basement Windows — Fire sprinklers reduce required rescue openings in every basement sleeping room.
    When a development is under consideration in an environmentally-sensitive area, there are many potential pitfalls. This is where good participation across disciplines truly pays off. Pre-development planning meetings unearth the challenges that can derail an otherwise profitable project. The AHJ has the power to work with developers and planners at this stage to identify creative and mutually beneficial options for community success. Installing fire sprinklers is one very effective tactic that can positively impact the outcome.

California
Fire Sprinkler Installation Delays
    An item by Jane Cartmill posted August 27, 2020, on www.villagenews.com, Fallbrook, California, said few can forget the terrible images of the Lilac Fire in 2017. Among the worst were scenes of people trying to rescue horses at San Luis Rey Training Center in Bonsall, where rescuers were burned and 45 horses ultimately perished.
    It was therefore terribly disturbing when the California Horse Racing Board (CHRB), during its August 20 meeting, granted an exemption to its own Fire Safety Rule to the San Luis Rey Training Center, where the Center’s representative admitted that about half of the barns have no sprinklers and asked for another full year in which to get them installed.
    With fires currently raging across California, the board also granted an exemption to the Los Alamitos racetrack.
    Given the wealth of the horse racing industry, it is hard to comprehend the failure of San Luis Rey Training Center to install sprinklers after the tragedy of the Lilac Fire and impossible to understand the unanimous decision of the CHRB to waive their own requirements regarding fire safety. It is one more example of what is wrong with horse racing.

Indiana
Inmates Cause Jail Sprinkler Problem
    An article by David Slone posted September 1, 2020, on www.timesuniononline.com, Warsaw, Indiana, said inmates in the Kosciusko County Jail continue to damage water sprinklers in their cells, which cause flooding damage elsewhere in the Justice Building, and the costs of repairs keep rising.
    County Administrator Marsha McSherry said, “We have been working on getting quotes for sprinkler head replacement in the jail as we’ve had some issues due to the old style being easily broken.”
    She provided two estimates: one from Indiana Fire Sprinkler & Backflow Inc., Fort Wayne, for $24,000 to replace 160 sprinkler heads; and the other from Koorsen Fire & Security, Fort Wayne, for $32,785.45 for 160 sprinkler heads. The commissioners approved the low bid from Indiana Fire Sprinkler & Backflow.
    She said Chief Mike Wilson and Fire Inspector Joe Fretz from the Warsaw-Wayne Fire Territory have been helpful and supportive, and Jail Commander Shane Coney supports the project, too.
    McSherry said the county had to replace four sprinkler heads the morning of August 28.
    Commissioner Cary Groninger said they’ve got to make sure the sprinkler system stays operational.
    On sprinkler systems, Fretz said once a sprinkler system goes down, they give any company about four hours to get it back up and running. It not only protects the inmates, but also anyone else in the building.
    Fretz said: “A lot of the old heads, to my understanding, [because they are pendents] inmates are putting towels around them” and pulling them off, which creates the water flow. “In the fire code, there is a little section that says you can put a flow valve in there, too,” which doesn’t let water into the cell until a jailer sees smoke or a fire and presses a button to allow water flow. “That’s another alternative to this, but the quick solution is to get these heads replaced.” The new sprinkler heads won’t allow inmates to take a towel to them, but said it would only be a matter of time before the inmates figure out how to set them off, too.

Tennessee
Committee Delays Action on Sprinklers
    An article by Chris Gregory posted August 20, 2020, on www.lebanondemocrat.com, Hartsville, Tennessee, said Trousdale County’s Codes & Zoning Committee opted to delay any action on adopting the latest version of International Code Council building codes.
    During the August 11 meeting, members said they wanted to get more information on the 2018 code version, including whether or not to require sprinkler systems in new residential construction. Trousdale County last updated its codes in 2012 when it adopted the 2009 version.
    Tennessee state government adopted the 2018 code version in July, necessitating the update at the local level.
    “What we’re trying to do is mirror what the state’s enforcing in other jurisdictions,” said Commissioner Dwight Jewell. “There are some things they’ve allowed us to be optional on and that’s what we need to discuss.”
    Building Inspector Sam Edwards updated commissioners on what was different about the 2018 ICC code as opposed to the 2009 version. On the residential side, two issues raised were requirements to interconnect smoke alarms and whether to require fire sprink­ler systems in new construction.
    With regards to sprinkler systems, commissioners said they wanted more information in areas such as cost and benefit analysis before deciding.
    Jewell said the state has a mobile trailer that was used to demonstrate the effectiveness of sprinklers. Jewell said he had reached out to have a demonstration done in Trousdale County but no date had been set. Committee members said they hoped to invite members of the Volunteer Fire Department and the entire Commission to view the demonstration when it does occur.
