Residential Sprinkler Systems

Last night, a home in a neighboring town was a complete loss after a fire. The town does not have fire hydrants, they rely on tankers to relay water to the site. I have always thought it should be a building code for new homes to have sprinklers. Does anyone have experience installing residential fire suppression systems for new construction or for retrofitting an existing home? Any ideas on cost?
