We are looking at installing fire sprinklers around the perimeter of a property which backs onto bushland. It will be run off a fire pump with the suction line being thrown into the pool. My supplier does the design and we install it. There will be a bit of education involved with showing them what to do in the event of a fire. It's pretty big in some parts of the country especially Victoria where it was badly affected by fires a few years back.
The sprinklers are not designed to stop a raging bushfire, but will stop embers from catching alight. A few houses were lost in Sydney in fires just this week due to a lack of rain recently and unseasonably hot weather mixed with strong winds.
This is what happened in Victoria in 2009
