FIRE prevention, organization

Please prepare a written recommendation, intended for your locally elected policymakers, regarding the costs and benefits of residential fire sprinklers, compared to the long-term cost of fire protection for your fire department (or a paid or volunteer fire department of your choosing).  In other words, you will be presenting a white paper on your recommendation for, or against, the costs associated with residential fire sprinklers.  You must have at least three sources, and use the APA 6th edition style guide.
