Pasadena fire officials have proposed an ordinance requiring the installation in three years of automatic sprinkler systems in all buildings more than four stories.
The ordinance would affect 46 commercial and residential buildings in Pasadena, Fire Marshal Joseph Nestor said. Historic buildings would be given four years to comply with the proposed ordinance, which is expected to be considered by the city’s Board of Directors next month.
“I have a lot of confidence in sprinklers,” Nestor said. “They are always on duty.”
