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?
If you are fixing a fire alarm system a planned fire watch would be appropriate. However, your local AHJ (FD) must approve it.
In my day, I would request that you check with me (the local AHJ) and make sure first that you understood what exactly a 'fire watch' is. Once we were both clear with that, you could put a fire watch in place but the main focus would be to get the issue corrected so that you didn't have to go through this again. There has to be a reason why the system is giving you an alarm, and that can be found and corrected.
