    The overall issue is difficult as we cannot prove something that did not happen would have. We can point to a sprinkler limiting or extinguishing a fire as minimizing damage, but it's rarely possible to prove it saved lives. While we know that in the grand scheme fire prevention obviously saves lives, there's no way to quantify this with data. With the proliferation of data via, reporting and computers, our modern society requires hard numbers, something we cannot provide for things that haven't happened. We need to build the public trust (even further) so that they understand that when we say these efforts save lives and property they can bank on it.

    Of course smaller measures such as installing smoke detectors when we see places without them is a great way to start, we also need to be advocates for future safety by supporting residential sprinklers, something we have a hard time convincing our own members of.
    If we don't put sprinklers in our fire stations, then why should the residents think they need them in their homes?
    Train to fight the fires you fight.
