The National Association of State Fire Marshals (NASFM) and the NASFM Foundation recently announced the release of "Bridging the Gap: Guide to Implementing a Residential Sprinkler Requirement." The updated guide is available for free.
The guide is “intended to provide a roadmap for jurisdictions that have adopted residential sprinkler system requirements to help implement the regulation" based on the implementation experiences of other jurisdictions
Included in the guide are sample policies, procedures, and checklists to assist jurisdictions in formulating their own best practices. These samples are a compilation of those from successful implementations across the country, and are considered "open source" so that anyone can copy, modify, and use them as they see fit.
