Do you think Texas should require (by state law) automatic fire safety suppresion systems in NEW homes in ’09?
Do you think Texas like at least 12 other states SHOULD require (by Texas state law) automatic fire safety suppresion systems (sprinkler systems) in ALL NEWLY construted homes both “stick” and “manufactured” homes effective on January 1, 2009 and are Texas children taught about fire safety in school? Where I am from (state of Connecticut) we are required by law effective January 1, 2004 (as an option) and MANDATORY on October 1, 2004 to have automatic fire safety suppresion systems in ALL NEW residential construction (homes) and since about the early ’70s the fire departments have gone to the schools and teach children about the dangers of fire.Does Texas do this? Do Texas parents “care” enough to teach there children about the dangers of fire and what to do in the event of fire (other than just dial 911)? Are they taught to know what a smoke detector looks like and what it sounds like when “activated”. Are they taught to get out of the house first before calling 911?

. no the added cost of adding these systems as well as the upkeep of these systems is beyond most buyers means. For the state to continue to be the Big Brother nanny state telling everyone what they have to do is giving away your freedom of choice. If you want a system you can have one built into the home, but to mandate it, is just plain socialism/fascism. It amazes me is people run from their nanny states where their rules and regulations have ruined their economies and lives to another state and the people want to have the new state start making those same rules and laws. If you want a sprinkler system have one added, if you want fire safety, teach it to your kids yourself! Instead of expecting the state to do your job as a parent, you take the initiative and tell your kids where to get out of the house at and when to do so. Its quite easy to do and you dont need a state mandate to do this.
