The drama continues unabated, each and every year. And each and every year it does seem to be getting a lot fiercer. This is the lot of many residential homes, as well as commercial businesses, that are along the borders of the mountainous regions of the California countryside. Because it is here that one of the global hotspots of natural runaway fires exist. These fires have always been extremely difficult to contain, never mind extinguish them. The fire sprinkler inspection california program is now, in a number of incidences, mandated or compulsory.
This mandatory requirement does not apply to the State of California alone. It is a ruling or recommendation that is being applied or enforced across the country. It is in effect in most countries of the world. Provided that the fire sprinkler system has been properly maintained, it is not likely that the sprinkler system will need to be inspected more than every other year. Standard inspection windows lean towards inspections every five years.
But for the concerned and vigilant property owner, this may very well raise alarms. And that is not necessarily a bad thing. The property owners are well within their rights to call for unscheduled inspections of their fire-fighting apparatus. And the privately owned fire risk management company will not have any hesitation in responding to such client requests. The fire sprinkler system is one item that needs to be checked for workability.
Other items that should be checked on a regular basis or at the scheduled intervals are handheld fire extinguishers, the firefighting toolbox and first aid kit, water and powder or foam hoses, as well as the fire hydrant. Needless to say, those properties lying closest to those firebreak areas will want to be checked out more regularly than usual.
