Hello my name is Michael Polito,
I'm a Plant Operations Manager at a hospital and I'm inquiring about adding blood bank refrigerator/freezer temperature alarms alarm through our main medical gas alarm panel that is monitored 24/7. Does anyone know if it's acceptable to have blood bank refrigerator and or freezer alarms send a closed contact signal to our main medical gas alarm panel monitored 24/7 by staff? I don't see anything in NFPA 99 with monitoring alarms unrelated to medical gas whether this is permissible or not. Can someone please provide some guidance?
