Does every system require an FDC per NFPA 25?

I came along a property with three wet sprinkler pipe risers. Nowhere on the property is there a main shutdown (PIV or DCDA) or a FDC. Each riser has a sectional butterfly control valve on the riser, however one of them is broken. I am pretty sure there is a city street valve we can request to be closed to repair the broken sectional valve. However, I cant imagine the property being allowed to be passed with no FDC. I also saw a riser that looked like it was capped off at the bottom flange. I was told there was a fire and they had to redo the whole system. I still cant figure out how to perform a back flush with no FDC. So does there need to be one installed to pass my inspection? cduffy
