MHARR: Sprinkler System Fires Up Again!

The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) reports the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC) voted to conditionally accept an MHI (Manufactured Housing Institute) proposed federal sprinkler standard for manufactured homes. The vote came one day after the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) admitted that manufactured homes have fewer fires than other one or two-family homes, and fewer fire injuries than other types of homes. While the conditional standard would only define what is accepted to pass federal standards in MH, as MHARR has repeatedly stated, this opens the door for a campaign to federally mandate sprinklers in all MH. The end result would be more costly homes in an industry that is already suffering.
