NFPA 25 is the baseline for inspection, testing, and maintenance of water-based fire protection systems. Compliance helps maximize system integrity to avoid failure and ensure fast, effective response in a fire emergency. The discussion will review requirements for properly maintaining a water based fire protection system in accordance with NFPA 25, and the responsibilities for compliance & record keeping. We will describe the specific scope of the standard, and identify the various ways in which information related to changes in the systems are handled. As well describe the various tables used in the standard, their specific purposes, and when to use which tables.
