Code Considerations for Inspecting, Testing, and Maintaining Fire Alarm Systems | #Verdafero #FireCode #NFPA #FireAlarm | Refer to Chapter 14 of NFPA 72 to understand minimum levels of performance for fire alarm systems.
Fire alarm systems are mostly made of electronics that degrade over time and can compromise system readiness, so proper maintenance, inspection and testing can ensure a system works as designed.
These steps also are required by local fire code, such as the International Fire Code 2018, 907.8: “The maintenance and testing schedules and procedures for fire alarm and fire detection systems shall be in accordance with NFPA 72.” NFPA 72 National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code covers the application, installation, location, performance, inspection, testing and maintenance of fire alarm systems.
