comments on indemnity for Fire Protection from article on April 18. 2017
    "Fire Protection" is no longer synonymous with "sprinklers".  The ICC now includes "fire alarm" under the definition "Fire Protection".  You will need to keep this in mind in future writings to avoid confusion.
    I understand that it was not likely considered in this case, but a sprinkler system is probably going to be considered an improvement to real property.  I wonder if your contract language to the contrary would hold up and/or if it is advisable to include in a sprinkler contract.  It’s pretty much a special purpose building plumbing system with automated flow control based on detection devices.  It’s hard to imagine anyone agreeing or ruling that it’s not an improvement to real property.  Not trying to make a case one way or another; just food for thought.
Thank you,
    Fire Protection [suppression] contracts are for improvement of real property, except for fire extinguishers.  There would be no point calling the installed equipment personalty, personal property.  Therefore, in those states where there are statutes limiting or prohibiting the enforecement of one or more of the "protective" provisions these provisions will not be enforced.  That makes it even more imperitive that fire protection companies use properly drafted contracts.  There are still protective provisions and other provisions that should be included in the contract.  Get the Standard Fire Protection All in One at
    The Fire Protection contract was called Fire Suppresson contract.  Who thinks that's a better title?
