Fire Sprinkler Systems: Ensuring Reliability Through Inspection, Testing, & Maintenance

Your facilities have fire protection and sprinkler equipment installed, but are you sure that they are providing reliable and adequate protection at this very moment? Have the sprinkler systems installed in your facilities lulled you into a false sense of security? Are you doing what is needed to properly inspect, test, and maintain your water based fire protection systems? Are your sprinkler systems ready for response to fire? Are your fire pumps exercised and flow tested as required? Are trip test and internal inspection frequencies of your equipment adequate? Are your records reflecting the service they represent? Do you have hidden impairments in your fire systems?

Walt Beattie, a regarded name in the fire protection field, will review the requirements of NFPA 25, Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems. Knowing the minimum requirements will help enable you to verify and evaluate the service being performed on your water based fire protection systems.
