Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems (NFPA 25)

When automatic sprinkler systems don’t perform to expectations, it is almost always due to human error.
Among these errors are poor maintenance, failure to keep the system appropriate to the
hazard, and failure to provide for other aspects of building fire protection. This training is
designed from an inspector’s approach, working from the outside of a building to the inside, and then through the building’s systems.
