Laurie Care Center Will Hire An Engineer Evaluate Sprinkler Systems

The Good Shepherd Nursing Home District in Laurie recently approved hiring an engineer to evaluate the fire sprinkler system at the Laurie Care Center. During a routine inspection in February, the Missouri Department of Health Determined the sprinkler heads at the care center were non-compliant. The board received estimates from $90,000 to $270,000 with the cost to replace everything at $750,000. Good Shepherd Nursing Home Board Chairman Ed Young says they did not entertain any of the bids since there was such a large spread, and the district will go out for new bids once the report is submitted. In the meantime, the district has stationed fire watch employees to walk around the building 24 hours a day looking for fire.
