A new webinar has been prepared by Fire Smarts, LLC to educate facility managers, building and fire officials and service providers worldwide on the basic requirements for inspection and testing of fire sprinkler systems. This training is based on NFPA 25 Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance (IT&M) of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems and will include a detailed look at the purpose of NFPA 25 as a wear and tear document not intended for design evaluation. The webinar is part of the online training resources offered by Fire Smarts.

“NFPA 25 is at times misunderstood and misapplied resulting in confusion on the responsibilities of the building owner, the service provider and the AHJ in ensuring a fire sprinkler system is properly maintained,” said Ryan J. Smith, Executive Director of Fire Smarts, LLC. “This webinar presentation is specifically to discuss the scope, roles and responsibilities within NFPA 25 for each stakeholder so that systems are properly maintained without unnecessary expense.”

Certificates will be issued to attendees following the webinar. Registered participants unable to attend the live webinar will have access to the webinar recording to view at a later time.
“To understand the maintenance requirements for water-based fire protection systems and manage maintenance expense, it is important to clearly understand the intent and scope of NFPA 25” said Tracey Bellamy, P.E., CFPS. “This webinar will explain the activities that are within the scope of the standard and those that are intentionally not.”
