Will I need to sprinkler my new building/house?

The requirements for fire suppression systems in a single family dwelling are determined by the size of the home, the available water supply at the street and the relative ease of access for the fire department to the house. The requirement for sprinkler systems for commercial buildings are found in the Oregon Structural Specialty Code (OSSC).
