Testing the Fire Safety System
fire safety, system testing, NFPA 25 April 29, 2010
NFPA also provides forms to document that testing has been completed. Facility managers must be careful to document that all testing, maintenance and inspection has been done appropriately, both to assure themselves that no stone has been left unturned and to protect themselves from litigation in the event of a tragedy.
In addition to testing active fire safety systems, such as sprinklers and smoke detectors, it's important to inspect the passive systems such as smoke barriers, fire doors and other structural fire protection. These are often overlooked, but are just as important in preventing the spread of fire.
