In regards to fire watches in a hospital setting, what exactly are they looking for in establishment of a temporary water supply.#lifesafety
When dealing with the 2012 NFPA 101 fire watch is defined:
There was no mention of "establishment of a temporary water supply". May it be a facility policy for TJC certification?
It seems it would depend on what is causing the water to be shut off to either the entire fire sprinkler system or just part of the system.
The fundamental provisions from NFPA 25 are centered around a time-based threshold and do not require any special measures from the impairment coordinator until a fire protection system has been out of service for more than 10 hours in a 24-hour period. Measures related to the sprinkler system include evacuation of the building, providing a fire watch, establishing a temporary water supply, and establishing a program to eliminate ignition sources and available fuel. Neither NFPA 25 nor NFPA 101 specify a preferred option, and each particular circumstance or situation determines the best course of action.
