As per NFPA, ist required to have a fire protection system (Fire hose cabinet, fire extinguisher,....  ) on the Roof floor for a Hotel where Mechanical types of equipment are located (AHU, Chiller,....)


knowing that we have standup pipe riser on the stairs covering the Roof area that to be used by firefighters (authorized personnel)  .so in this case, if any fire happened we must wait until the firefighters reach the site connect their hoses and stop the fire.

is there any code in NFPA mentioned to add fire cabinet or fire extinguisher side to equipment at the roof .
