Fire Prevention Bureau Schedule of Fees
Because of an intergovernmental agreement, this requirement is also in effect for the unincorporated areas within the jurisdiction of the Roselle Fire Protection District, serviced by the Roselle Fire Department
For single family homes, each one is unique, therefore it is very difficult to offer a “cost per square foot” for a sprinkler system. However, it has been found that most systems can be installed for under 2 percent of the total cost of a home.For additional information on fire suppression sprinkler requirements, please see the fire suppression sprinkler FAQ.
