Commonly Overlooked Test and Inspection Requirements
The following is a guest blog contribution from one of BuildingReports’ service members, A1 Sprinkler & Systems Integration. If you would like to contribute as a guest blogger, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Life safety systems such as sprinklers, fire extinguishers, fire pumps, and fire alarms all have required tests and inspections to ensure they are running properly. Fire safety systems protect lives and property, and where they are required to be installed there is an authority (such as the AHJ or Fire Department) to inspect them and ensure compliance with state and federal laws.
While many people look at these inspections as a hassle, they actually benefit the building or business owners, and those that utilize the building.
