This seminar will provide fire officials, engineering/facilities managers, and business owners with information specific to fire alarm inspection, testing, and maintenance that will ensure systems are maintained in accordance with National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code standards. Lack of code compliant inspection and maintenance is a contributing factor to fire alarm failure and also leads to unwanted fire alarm calls, which negatively impact business owners and local fire departments. This course will provide attendees with the criteria to ensure fire alarm systems remain in operational condition, which will improve fire and life safety for building occupants.
