OP1 Fire Protection of the Building


[F13-OP1.2]Applies to the requirement for fire alarm systems, including those with a voice communication system, to be provided with an emergency power supply.


Intent 1:

To limit the probability that a fire alarm system will not operate properly when there is a failure of the normal power source to the fire alarm system in a fire situation, which could lead to emergency responders not being promptly notified of the fire, which could lead to delays or ineffectiveness in carrying out fire emergency response operations, which could lead to the spread of fire, which could lead to damage to the building.
