What is an NFPA 25 Fire Inspection in New York?

The National Fire Protection Association Standard# 25, otherwise known as NFPA 25, is the nationwide standard that governs the inspection, testing, and maintenance of water-based fire protection systems. Created in 1992, NFPA 25 has continued to evolve, with ever-improving criteria and guidelines regarding evaluation techniques pertaining to fire sprinkler inspections, fire pump flow tests, and all items applicable toward water-based fire protection systems. This standard was created in order to help all building owners comply with laws, codes, and regulations in an effort to keep the public safe in the event of a fire. The NFPA 25 testing and inspection regimen performed in accordance with New York City requirements ensures maximum system integrity to avoid failure, provide specific methods to ensure code enforcement and ensure fast, effective response in a fire emergency.
The NFPA 25 regimen mandated by New York City includes specific annual, monthly, quarterly, weekly, and (in some cases) a daily schedule of items to be performed. These items include information relative to the conditions of the system's water supply, gravity and pressure tanks, valves, risers, piping, sprinkler heads, fire department connections, and alarms.
These items include information on the conditions of and documentation about the elements of your system, including, but not limited to, the following:
