Entitled What You Should Know About the Requirements for Less Frequently Performed Fire Sprinkler System Inspections and Tests, the March 28 Webinar will be presented by Terry Victor, national manager of sprinkler business processes at SimplexGrinnell.
National Fire Protection Association Standard 25, Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems, has been widely adopted across the United States as the standard for the inspection, testing, and maintenance of water-based fire protection systems. Much of the standard focuses on essential inspection and testing that must be performed on a quarterly or yearly basis. However, NFPA 25 also prescribes numerous inspections and tests that are required only every three years, every five years, or with even longer intervals in between. While sometimes overlooked, these longer-interval inspections and tests are vitally important to the proper maintenance and operation of water-based fire protection systems. Typically, they uncover serious deficiencies, such as obstructions in piping systems, components that may not operate properly, or inadequate water flows and pressures. This Webinar will address the requirements for those less frequently performed inspections and tests. We will also review the potential impacts when the work is not performed according to schedule outlined in NFPA 25.
This Webinar will run 11:00 AM-12:30 PM Eastern on March 28 and is free to center members and can be accessed at
