I’m not aware of any jurisdiction that requires them and I don’t think there will be any change until the insurance industry changes their mindset first. I just built a new home a year and a half ago. I wanted to install sprinklers and was told my premiums would go up if I did. They are more concerned about water damage than smoke damage and because they insure the property have no consideration of the occupants. It’s unfortunate and hopefully this will change.
