New York City has adopted the National Fire Protection Association Standard # 25 as a matter of law effective January 1, 2012. New York City is one of the few large cities worldwide that had yet to adopt this standard and the FDNY and insurance company underwriters have now fully embraced this new standard and are positioned to aggressively assure compliance for all applicable facilities. The new law now makes every building owner legally responsible for ensuring that all NFPA 25 inspections, testing, and servicing intervals are performed by a licensed individual in Brooklyn and that detailed records of same are maintained for a minimum of 3 years and are readily available for inspection by the New York City Fire Department at any given moment.
NFPA 25 has specific inspection, testing, and servicing requirements. The reporting shall include information relative to the conditions of water supply, gravity and pressure tanks, valves, risers, piping, sprinkler heads, fire department connections, alarms, fire/booster/special service pumps, internal obstructions, and conditions of all other system equipment and appurtenances.
The W-12 FDNY Certificate of Fitness has been replaced by an S-12 Certificate of Fitness. Allstate Sprinkler’s NFPA 25 inspection and service personnel in Brooklyn have all been certified by the FDNY at such a level. We have also customized computer software to help assure that your facility is in compliance and that the inevitable fines and potential liability for not adhering to NFPA 25 can be avoided.
Please contact us immediately so that the appropriate paperwork and contracts can be established and the FDNY’s new requirements can be satisfied.

A few steps to help you prepare for your fire sprinkler inspection
Preparation is Important to Passing Your Fire Sprinkler Inspection:
• Meeting with the inspector before your fire inspection may be in your best interest in order to ask what items the inspector will be looking for.
• Give the fire inspector copies of your fire system or equipment inspection, testing, and maintenance reports. Reviewing these reports with the inspector before the actual inspection is important to provide any issues noted previously had been corrected.
• Make sure to have a responsible person available to accompany the fire inspector with keys to all areas, and take notes. These notes will help give you additional insight into the inspector’ thought process and may be able to provide you with valuable information for your future fire sprinkler inspections.
Preparing for an annual inspection is important for developing a good working relationship with the fire inspector and gaining positive results. Using a general checklist can help you prepare for the inspection.
Inspection contracts are designed to review a multi-point checklist during each of your sprinkler inspections. This method of inspection permits to provide a thorough and well-documented account of the status of your sprinkler system(s).
