Fire System Out of Service Form

You have requested that your commercial fire alarm system be put “on test.” Since we anticipate your system to be offline for more than 8 hours, we are required to inform you of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) code for systems out of service for 8 hours or more.

The NFPA code states that if you have a fire alarm or sprinkler system that is out of service for 8 hours or more, you must notify the Authority Having Jurisdiction(1) (AHJ) to determine whether the building should be evacuated, or if an Approved Fire Watch(2) shall be provided until the system returns to normal operation.

Please complete and return this form to acknowledge your compliance with the NFPA code.
