Nursing home sprinklers mandatory
Paul Murray has been pushing for some time, and now it is mandatory. All NSW nursing homes will be required to install sprinkler systems, but State Government has rejected their request to help pay for them.
Following last year's fatal fire at Quakers Hill, the government has decided all nursing home operators must either install sprinkler systems within 18-months, or produce a business-plan to show they will do so within three years.
State Planning Minister Brad Hazard, who has called on the Federal Government to help the industry meet the costs.

Paul Murray has proof sprinklers will save lives in nursing homes. He continues to press ahead with the campaign for sprinklers in nursing homes across the state following the fatal fire several months ago.
Paul Murray has campaigned to get sprinklers installed in every nursing home across the state, and every day we get closer to some action. He speaks with Amelia Christie about the latest action to dob in those without.
Paul, now that you have done such a marvelous job on getting the sprinklers mandated, can you now go in to bat on stopping the Muslim Colonisation of Australia!Bikinis not burkas! Saturday 18 August, 2012 - 4:33 AM
Sprinklers are a great start....perhaos they need to ensure that all staff that work in aged care have training to ensure they know what to do in the event of an emergency chancers are that staff would find an emergency before the sprinklers do.....John Friday 17 August, 2012 - 11:23 AM
We have a damned reckless Labor government incapable of running the country. There is no chance to get federal funding for sprinklers which should of been compulsory for licensing approval. The Labor government after all their wasted $billions in stupid donations to other countries who don't even like us, have no money left for battling Aussies.Sherene Thursday 16 August, 2012 - 5:36 PM
