Life Safety Equipment
This building is equipped with different types of fire protection devices. These devices vary based on the size of the building and the jurisdiction in which it is located. Your building is reviewed annually for safety compliance. The fire protection systems are inspected and tested in conjunction with local codes and regulations.
Your building may be equipped with:
- Automatic Sprinkler System: Each sprinkler head is individually heat activated. Entering the mechanical room typically accesses the sprinkler shut-off valves.
- Local Fire Alarm: A local fire alarm typically consists of multiple manual pull stations distributed throughout the building. One is typically located near each exit. By pulling any one of the manual pull stations a fire alarm will activate notifying the occupants of an emergency. This alarm may or may not notify the fire department.
- Smoke Detectors: In the event that a smoke detector is activated, it will sound an alarm. This alarm may or may not notify the fire department.
- Fire Extinguishers: Fire extinguishers are typically mounted in special holders on the walls throughout the occupancy. These can be used on small fires if the operator is trained in their use and operation.
