Inspection Testing and Maintenance of Fire Sprinkler Systems for the Building Owner

Watch this session from NFMT Remix that took place in Orlando

This presentation from Vincent Powers, Inspection Test and Maintenance Specialist for the National Fire Sprinkler Association will focus on common inspection and testing requirements for fire sprinkler systems and the relationship among the parties involved.

The biggest questions surrounding inspection, testing and maintenance of fire sprinklers include will the system work, how do you know it works, and who is responsible if it doesn't work.

If fire sprinklers are ineffective or fail to operate, responsibility could fall to the building owner (or designated rep like the facility manager), the contractor, or the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Powers explains the role of each member in this triangle.

Finally, Powers covers NFPA 25, the standard for Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems. He explains how to navigate the standard, how to determine if the contractor is meeting the contract requirements, and how the document is enforced.
