Vicksburg, Virginia Institutes Fire Sprinkler Assistance Program

In a move to protect older downtown Vicksburg buildings and ease the burden of water tap costs on building owners, The Vicksburg Board of Mayor and Aldermen has approved a Fire Sprinkler Assistance Program which provides an economic incentive for owners of buildings 50 years and older within the city’s Main Street District to install sprinklers in their buildings.

Under the program, the city will install a tap from the waterline to the building and for the system at no charge. The property owner will pay the cost of installing the system. Read more here.
