Sirina Fire Protection is one of the best contractors when it comes to inspections, testing and maintenance. We are versatile enough to work on sites as small as a local deli or nail salon and large and well organized enough to handle multiple high-rise buildings all part of one account. Between our qualifications, history and insurability there are no jobs too big or too small for us.
Now more than ever New York City, Long Island and Westchester have been putting a priority on fire safety by enforcing laws, rules and regulations for building owners to protect their people and property. Major authorities such as FDNY, NCFM, FM, UL and many others use the standards set forth by the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) to ensure that the best practices are used in regards to fire safety.
NFPA 25 is the standard for inspecting, testing and maintaining water-based fire protection systems. It includes policies and procedures to be taken by building owners, their authorized representatives and master fire suppression and piping contractors such as Sirina Fire Protection. It covers standpipe systems with their hose valves and connections, fire pumps, water tanks, sprinkler valves, sprinkler heads, sprinkler piping, heat detecting devices, alarms, gauges, signage, fire department connections, hangars and safety procedures.
The NFPA and authorities requiring their standards be used break down these procedures into three categories: inspections, testing and maintenance. Inspections consist of routine visits visually confirming that all components of a system are operating as intended. Testing involves simulating the use of these components and maintenance are repairs that prevent the system from failing in the event of an actual emergency. Although many of the simpler inspections can be performed by a competent party (such as a certificate of fitness holder), most require a master fire suppression contractor such as Sirina Fire Protection.
