Fire Marshal's Office Important Updates

Standpipe Testing

Effective immediately, in accordance with NFPA 14 all standpipes require flow testing. We will provide the pumper truck when needed, but only after a waiver is signed by all parties.

Automated External Defibrillator (AED)

All new certificates of occupancies with occupant loads of 300 or more now require an AED to be installed. Installation and maintenance is the responsibility of the owner/occupant prior to issuance of the certificate of occupancy.
