Our Fire Inspection program has been working with area businesses and the Central Sprinkler Company in doing a voluntary replacement program for sprinkler heads. Central Sprinkler has identified sprinkler heads manufactured between 1988 and 2000 with some O-ring design problems. Deputy Chief Zoellick takes  pictures, completes the necessary forms, notifies the businesses and has been making sure any deficiencies are corrected. Captain Zoellick has identified all the sprinkler heads that need to be replaced and notified the manufacture of his findings. This replacement program is estimated to take up to five years to replace all of the heads that need to be replaced.
