    Sprinklers

    Would it be a good idea to have them in public buildings, properties and structures over 2 floors high?

    Surely a good idea in all buildings, regardless of owenership, users or number of floors?
    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    In some cases, yes I agree regardless of ownership. However a lot comes down to the age and design of the building.
    Modern fire/building regs are far more stringent than they have ever been. While no building can be considered fire proof, emphasis has to put on constructing buildings that inherently prevent the outbreak and spread of fire and offer safest measures for escape. Retro fitting sprinkler systems to 1970s housing blocks (with only a single stairwell!) would seem a no brainer though.
