In Miami International Airport Carlos hits a switch that activates all the fire sprinklers. Normal fire sprinkler systems do not have a switch to activate the entire system, instead sprinklers are activated by the heat of the fire melting a glass trigger in the sprinkler head and only the ones in immediate area of the fire activate. If all the sprinklers activated at once the water pressure at each head would be significantly lower than if only one or two activated, impeding the suppression of the fire, and the water damage caused by a sprinkler would be over a large area instead of just the area of the fire. This is a common goof and is seen in many movies and TV shows. See more »
