San Diego Fire Protection Inspections
Fire Protection Inspections are done in San Diego to comply with Federal, State, OSHA, NFPA and the City of San Diego fire codes, rules and regulations. A fire protection system may have fire sprinklers, fire extinguishers, fire alarms, fire suppression systems, fire hydrants, standpipe fire sprinklers or many other fire protection systems installed that must be inspected and tested regularly to avoid violations.
Inspections should be completed by state licensed fire protection companies or fire protection contractors. You should request an estimate, bid or quote before you begin service work with any fire protection company in San Diego.
Who Inspects the Fire Protection System
The fire protection system should be periodically tested, inspected, and repaired when needed to ensure that the fire protection system is functioning properly. Generally fire protection inspections will conform to the NFPA Standards and Codes for fire protection inspections, testing and maintenance.
Work with State licensed fire protection companies in San Diego to perform all necessary tests and inspections. Get estimates before committing to any installation, service or repair.
What is a Fire Protection Inspection
An inspection of your fire protection system is a series of checks, tests, and visual inspections to make sure all fire sprinklers, fire alarms, fire extinguishers and fire suppression systems work. During these inspections fire protection companies may find that certain systems require repairs or maintenance.
Inspecting your fire protection system should be regularly completed and a schedule established for weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, annual and 5 year inspections to your fire protection system. These inspections only ensure that your fire protection, fire sprinklers, sprinkler heads, fire alarms, heat detection alarms, fire hydrants, control valves, and any other components are all operating and functioning properly.
Where Do Fire Protection Inspections Occur
An inspection of your fire protection system will occur at your commercial building, home residence, office, structure or facility that has an installed fire protection system. The fire safety engineer or fire protection contractor will run a series of checks, tests, inspections both visual and mechanical to ensure the fire protection system is operating and functioning.
When Fire Protection Inspections Take Place
The inspections of the fire protection system should take place in regular intervals, such as weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, yearly and every 5 years. Some of these routine checks can be completed by you, others will require the services of a fire safety engineer and/or fire protection contractor.
Why Inspect a Fire Protection System
You should routinely inspect, test, check and maintain your fire protection system to ensure all parts of the fire protection system operate and function properly. A poorly operating fire protection system may not operate correctly, meaning the fire could spread, the fire alarms could be broken, etc…you need to be alarmed of the fire, given time to evacuate, have the fire sprinklers extinguish and stop the fire from spreading, Therefore you will want a safe and working fire protection system, regularly tested, inspected, maintenance and ready to extinguish fires.
How Can I Inspect a Fire Protection System
Some of these visual and physical inspections to your fire protection system will be completed by you. However due to the complexity of the fire protection system we recommend that you contact a fire safety engineer and/or fire protection contractor to evaluate, test, inspect, maintain or repair your fire protection system.
Many business owners must comply with fire codes by having active State licensed fire protection companies perform all tests and inspections in San Diego.
