Fire Experience, Smoke Alarms and Sprinklers in Canadian Homes: CMHC Research to 2005
63945

This document summarizes CMHC research since the late 1980's examining the need for and implications of government mandating sprinklers in new houses. Beginning with a description of the steep decline of fire deaths since the 1970's, the paper goes on to highlight the modest cost-benefit profile of sprinklers as compared to smoke alarms, the relatively small fatality risk presented by residential fires, as well as those groups and housing types which are at a relatively high risk.
