We recently responded to a service call for a sprinkler activation in an apartment building due to a fire. Upon arrival it was discovered a single 1999 Viking Model M residential pendant sprinkler had activated to control the small fire in the dwelling unit. The head was replaced and the system was placed back in service and the residents returned to their apartments. Without the activation of the sprinkler system, in the Type V (wood frame) structure, serious injury to the tenants could have occurred and the building would have sustained significant damage. Ironically the wet fire sprinkler system had just been inspected the week before. Once again a properly installed and maintained water based fire sprinkler system saves lives and property.
