Los Angeles Residential Fire Protection Certification
Depending on where you live in Los Angeles County you may have to comply with certain Los Angeles Fire Codes, Rules, and Regulations. You must comply with all Los Angeles County Fire Codes, Rules, and Regulations from where you park your cars to the flow of water to your home, check with your local fire marshal (http://lafd.org/) for recent changes to Los Angeles Fire Codes and to see if you require an inspection or certification of your fire sprinkler and fire protection system.
It’s always a good idea even if residential fire protection certification is not required, on a minimum have scheduled fire protection system inspections completed as suggested by NFSI, the National Fire Sprinkler Association (NFSA http://www.nfsa.org/info/fyi/maint.html) suggests through their published NFPA 25 Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems. This document recommends that control valves without electronic supervision be checked on a weekly basis, just to make sure that they are in the open position. Other system components have different requirements. Check with the NFPA 25 or the manufacturers’ literature for details.
At least four times each year, a full sprinkler system inspection should be performed by a knowledgeable professional. Some states and cities require more frequent inspections. Most sprinkler contractors offer economical long-term service agreements. These contractors can provide you with the test certificates which will comply with your insurance company and local fire department inspection requirements. The fire sprinkler inspections ensure the fire protection system is working properly.
You may even qualify for additional home owners’ fire hazard insurance discounts, by having your home completely protected by a fire sprinkler system and fire protection system. Check with your current fire hazard insurance provider for complete details regarding adding the protection of a fire sprinkler system to your home.
