  8. HYDRANT, SPRINKLER SYSTEM INSPECTION & TESTING • OUR TESTING • QUARTERLY OUR TECHNICIAN INSPECTS: • Water flow alarmdevices • Valve supervisory alarmdevices • Supervisory signal devices(except valve supervisoryswitches) • Hydraulicnameplate • Mechanicaldevices • ConsiderThis • Sometime before midnight on October 15, 2004, afire began on the 34th floor of a 56-story government office building in Caracas, Venezuela. Fortunately, the building was unoccupied at the time, exceptfor • a handful of security personnel who evacuated safely. • Despitethefactthatasprinklersystemhadbeeninstalled, the fire did more than $250 million in damage, burning the structure’s contents from the 34th floor to the 50th. Why? Because, as previous inspections revealed, the sprinkler system had not been properly tested or maintained, thus it wasn’t in working condition. The building designers said local fire alarm panels weren’t connected to a building-wide panel and the standpipe system was inoperable at the time of thefire. • Properly maintained sprinklers save lives and prevent costly propertydamage. • ANNUALY, OUR TECHNICIAN INSPECTS : • Buildings before rainy season • Hanger/seismicbracing • Pipefittings • Sprinklers • Sparesprinklers • Informationsignage • Water flow alarmdevices • Valve supervisory alarmdevices • Supervisory signal devices(except valve supervisoryswitches) • Nameplate • Mechanicaldevices 13
