New Fire Code Consideration

The Douglas County Commissioners will be considering the adoption of a new fire code which would require the installation of automatic fire sprinklers on new construction of homes less than 5,000 square feet. Their approval would acknowledge that benefits outweigh the cost to homeowners.  East Fork Fire Protection District has requested the County also consider requiring automatic sprinklers in new homes that are more than 1,000 feet from a fire hydrant or other water source.
