Modular Homes must have Sprinklers

The herald-mail reports the Washington County Board of Commissioners in Maryland voted unanimously to opt out of a state mandated requirement to install sprinkler systems in all new one and two-family houses and townhomes. The Maryland General Assembly passed a measure earlier this year to prevent local jurisdictions from diluting the sprinkler requirements for town houses as well as one and two-family homes. However, at the end of June they were told they could remove the requirements for one and two-family homes if they passed an amendment by Oct. 1 of this year. Although no mention is made of manufactured homes, MHProNews has learned new modular homes are still required to have sprinkler systems.
