Read more about testing and reporting your business's life safety protection system.
The International Fire Code and related standards specify the confidence testing requirements for the fire protection systems listed. Property owners, or their designee, are solely responsible for the timely testing of fire protection devices, correcting deficiencies, and reporting test results. Automatic courtesy notifications from Tegris Fire Inc. may be sent when systems are due for testing.
|Fire Protection Systems||How Often Testing is Required|
|Clean Agents and Halon||Annually|
|Private Fire Hydrants||Every 5 Years|
|Rolling and Sliding Fire Doors||Annually|
|Standpipes||Every 5 Years|
|Wet Chemical (except range hoods)||Annually|
|Other Systems||As determined by the West Richland Building Department|
After the system is tested, the testing contractor will submit the results to West Richland Building Department using the Tegris Fire Inc. online reporting system. Any system deficiencies shall be reported and may require correction before the system is approved by the Building Department.
