NFPA 25 – Inspecting, Testing & Maintaining Fire Protection Systems
A fire sprinkler system must work the first time, every time. To ensure your fire sprinkler system will perform when you need it, you should implement a regular inspection program.
Recent court decisions have held building owners liable in cases of fires in buildings that lacked fire sprinkler systems. Similarly, a building owner could be held liable for failing to maintain a fire sprinkler system in working condition.
Regular fire sprinkler systems inspections help reveal problems long before they can become a major business interruption or lead to costly emergency service. You can schedule repairs for a convenient time, saving the costs of unnecessary business interruption. Midwest Fire Protection will coordinate with your alarm monitoring provider for approved shut down and control procedures for repairs and alterations.
Saving Money on Insurance
Even though your building is fully sprinklered, you may not be getting the full discount to which you may be entitled.
Completely sprinklered buildings enjoy special reduced insurance rates — which can evaporate if the insurance company does not receive verification of system inspection by a licensed contractor.
Get your sprinkler system tested and take full advantage of your fire sprinkler system.
