Lack of Sprinklers
Too often firefighters are injured in a blaze that spread as a result of someone’s negligence or because there was a violation of an applicable code. For instance, a working sprinkler system is required in certain buildings in New York City, yet many landlords do not comply. As a result, firefighters can be exposed to serious, sometimes deadly, situations where fires grow out of control.
