Electric sprinklers, automated inspection and testing, energized controllers, and much more: those are just a few of the topics addressed in a new feature story on the important changes to the 2020 edition of NFPA 25, Standard for the Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems. The story appears in the May/June issue of NFPA Journal, out now.
In the story, “Keeping Up With Technology,” author Chad Duffy, a principal fire protection engineer at NFPA and staff liaison for NFPA 25, looks at an array of changes to the code precipitated by “new technologies in sprinkler design and inspection methods that have kept the technical committee for NFPA 25 busy throughout the last revision cycle,” Duffy writes. “It’s important to stay on top of key changes in the field. The most up-to-date edition of NFPA 25 should be used for all inspection, testing, and maintenance activities.”
The article, part of the NFPA Journal coverage of the upcoming 2019 Conference & Expo in San Antonio, Texas, includes a listing of related education sessions and other events.
The May/June issue of NFPA Journal includes a comprehensive preview of this year’s Conference & Expo and is available in print, online, and through our free app, which can be downloaded at nfpa.org/journalapps.
