Throughout the year, officials address an array of emergencies.
Sprinklers bring awareness to fires that have started by activating the alarm system and notifying the 911 Communications Center.
At times, however, sprinklers are activated accidentally, according to a release from the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue (PWCDFR).
This can occur when items are hung from sprinkler heads.
Citizens can avoid triggering sprinkler heads by not touching them. Clothing, plants and decorations also shouldn’t be hung from them.
