VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - As part of national fire prevention month, the Valdosta Fire Department is encouraging people to install a sprinkler system in their home.

Wednesday, firefighters installed a sprinkler system in the home on Lee St. that Habitat for Humanity began building on September 11th in honor of the 9/11 terror attacks.

Valdosta Fire Marshal, Cpt. James Clinkscales, said having a sprinkler system in your home could help save your life and it will also help save you money.

"With a sprinkler system in your home, it gives you a big break on your insurance. So, that can be beneficial to the residents of the home," Cpt. Clinkscales explained.

Call your local sprinkler system company for more information about having a system installed in your home.
