NFPA 25 Update

NFPA 25 Update (10-11-2011) | Report

NFPA is now accepting Proposals to the 2014 edition of NFPA 25. The closing date to submit a Proposal is 11/25/11.

The ROP (Report on Proposals) meeting is scheduled for Jan 17-19, 2012 in San Antonio, TX – I will attend.

NFPA issued the attached TIA to NFPA 25.

I am going to submit two proposals to 25:

1) (Suction supply for a fire pump) we need to add something like “as supplied by the owner” referring to the system demand (as we did in sction Too often, the system demand is unknown by the inspector since hydraulic placards are often not available.

2) (Regarding inspecting to insure that a supply of heat capable of maintaining a minimum 40F heat in a dry pipe valve enclosure exists). This needs to be moved to Chapter 4 and become part of the Owner’s Responsibility.
