The Yorkshire Post is running a call for South Yorkshire schools to be fitted with sprinklers after the disclosure that 59 school fires have taken place in the past two years. The South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service says that:

“When you consider the huge costs associated with a school fire such as rebuilding, temporary relocation, loss of equipment and pupil’s academic work, it seems like an obvious move to install a sprinkler system, but many schools still don’t. Above everything else, sprinklers give added protection to the pupils and staff at the school, and the firefighters who respond to tackle the fire”.
