Fire Sprinkler Systems

Some buildings require a fire sprinkler system because of the size of the building or the type of daily business operations that are conducted. If you have a sprinkler system installed, be sure to check the following:

____ Has the fire sprinkler system been inspected and tagged by a qualified contractor within the past year?
____ Is there at least three feet of clear space around sprinkler connections and valves?
____ Are spare sprinkler heads and an appropriate wrench installed in a cabinet near the sprinkler riser?
____ Are sprinkler control valves chained open or maintained by a fire alarm system?
____ Is the fire department connection on the outside of the building free of obstruction and are the caps in place?
