Examples of sprinkler in a Sentence

  1. Angela Rasmussen:

    Your body has basically a fire alarm system that's a sprinkler system all at the same time... [ This ] is the first line of defense against different viral infections. When that system is delayed at triggering the alarm, and then consequently triggering the defenses, people tend to have worse outcomes and more severe disease, we're still learning about what makes that delay happen. But that does seem to be one of the major driving factors in how sick people will ultimately get.

  2. Ritchie Torres:

And so the risk of a fire is much higher in lower-income neighborhoods in The Bronx than it might be elsewhere in New York City or in the country, when we allow our affordable housing developments to be plagued by decades of disinvestment, we are putting lives at risk. These buildings are wide open to catastrophic fires that can cost people their lives, including the lives of children.

  3. Mila Kunis:
