Service and Inspections
Fire sprinkler systems are designed to do one thing: save lives!
Contrary to popular belief, a fire sprinkler system is not designed to extinguish fires. They are designed to contain fires for a long enough period of time to allow the local fire department to arrive on scene and extinguish the fire through traditional fire fighting methods.
The ability of your sprinkler system to contain a fire depends upon its integrity and the working order of the system. The only way to keep a fire sprinkler system in working order is to perform routine inspections as mandated by the Nation Fire Protection Authority, your state's Fire Marshall, and your local Authority Having Jurisdiction.
N.F.P.A. 25 is a codebook written specifically to discuss the various types of fire sprinkler inspections that are currently performed by state licensed fire protection companies. There are several types of inspections that need to be performed.
Wet systems Dry Systems Preaction Systems Deluge Systems Special Hazards Fire Pumps Standpipes
Backflow Preventers Foam Systems Underground Leak Detection Underground Fire Service Mains Fire Hydrants Vesda Smoke Detection Systems
