BEND, OR -- The Bend Fire Department issued a warning to building owners, in anticipation of prolonged sub-freezing temperatures: Now is the time to make sure sprinkler systems are properly maintained. Deputy Fire Marshal Jeff Bond says the department responds to several calls each year where fire sprinkler systems have  been activated by broken pipes due to freezing temperatures.  He says the most common causes are lack of proper maintenance and inadequate heating.

 

If your fire sprinkler system does freeze, or appears to stop working for any reason, Bonds says you should contact your local fire department immediately. For more on this week's forecast, CLICK HERE.
