Speaking of vaults, we are in the process of "sprinkling" our Town Hall and
the sprinkler company wants to include the vault and put fire sprinklers in
it.  I'm not sure that is a good idea. Hopefully it's fire proof and the
water damage could be greater than the fire damage.  Where can I get
specifics, etc on this subject.  Thanks
Nettie, Ludlow
