I am the safety coordinator in a food manufacturing plant. I have seen language in the safety manual that the previous safety coordinator put together that directs the plant manager shut down the equipment in our plant in the event of a fire. Is that a requirement, suggestion or not suggested to attempt when a fire is burning?

I have been reading through NFPA 25 and I am trying to understand it a little better. Specifically, is the 5 year inspection required on dry, pre-action systems? Also, if you could reference where it is stated that this applies to dry systems in the code book, it would be much appreciated. Thanks

I am looking for suggestions for smoke alarms for a hearing impaired instructor that rotates classrooms at a community college. What are the options and which codes need to be followed?

The fire alarm at my warehouse has issues and occasionally goes off where we can't get it to stop until the company comes out to fix it. Are we allowed to turn off the horns and conduct a fire watch during this time?

Does NFPA have any mantel clearance requirements for non-combustible materials?  I am looking at a steel mantel.  One vendor specifically says "Due to its steel construction, this shelf has no restrictions regarding combustible clearance, so you’ll be able to mount the shelf above your fireplace without worry."  A 2nd vendor says you still must… (Show more)

Anyone know why GFCIs are not required for equipment located below sinks such as in-sink waste disposers and trash compactors? I don't see a requirement in 210.8 and other sections such as 422.16(B)(1) and (2). Was curious to know the reasoning.   Thanks.
