Recently, Congress passed a tax reform package, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, which contains important life and property saving provisions that may be of interest to area businesses. The new law incentives business owners to retrofit their properties with fire sprinkler systems and allow the cost of the sprinkler retrofits to be deducted as a section 179 expense. This legislation has been in the “works” since the tragic Station Night Club fire in Rhode Island in 2003 where 100 people died. Many things went wrong that night that resulted in the deaths, but fire sprinklers would have, without a doubt, prevented many of those fatalities. A copy of the tax reform incentive announcement is attached.
Strongsville Fire and Emergency Services is supportive of this initiative along with other national fire organizations including the International Association of Fire Chiefs, International Association of Firefighters, and the National Fire Sprinkler Association. We encourage businesses to consider upgrading their fire protection systems to include fire sprinklers for the safety of the public, their business and their employees, and responding firefighters. 

Businesses considering taking advantage of this opportunity should consult their tax professional and a certified fire protection company. Any businesses that are interested may contact Strongsville's Fire Marshal Office at 440-580-3225 with any questions.
