In 2012, the FDNY adopted the National Fire Protection Association’s Standard #25 (NFPA 25). The NFPA 25 law makes every building owner legally responsible for ensuring that all NFPA 25 inspections, testing and servicing intervals are performed by a licensed individual, and that detailed records are maintained for a minimum of 3 years and are available for inspection by the FDNY at any given moment. Contact us today for a free quote so the appropriate paperwork and contracts can be established and the FDNY’s requirements satisfied.
NFPA 25 has a specific monthly, quarterly and annual 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.

NFPA 25 has numerous points for weekly visual inspection. It expects building occupants or owners to perform these weekly inspections. This may also require a weekly fire pump churn test, if applicable. You can perform the weekly visual inspections yourself, or we can perform them for you. Maintaining records of these inspections can significantly help you if you receive a violation. We maintain all records of every fire sprinkler inspection in NYC and the surrounding areas, and can provide both hard copies and digital records upon request by the FDNY.
Monthly inspections standardized by NFPA 25 are more in depth than the weekly regimen and we maintain all records of these on file to comply with FDNY requirements. In addition to the weekly inspection regimen, the monthly inspection includes, but is not limited to the visual inspection of the following components:
Quarterly tests and inspections standardized by NFPA 25 include the monthly visual inspection(s) identified above as well as a much more detailed visual and hands-on testing regimen. The quarterly fire sprinkler inspection also includes confirming adequate pressure readings and testing water flow and tamper switches. Post indicating valves and priming levels must also be tested and drain tests for backflow devices need to be performed. The fire sprinkler riser will also be inspected to ensure that the hydraulic nameplate, if applicable, is attached and legible.
Annual tests and inspections standardized by NFPA 25 include the monthly and quarterly regiment identified above but has a few additional requirements. All components of the system(s) are visually inspected, potential obstructions are identified, and an assessment is made to determine if the requirements of the system have changed. Each sprinkler control valve is tested, pumps are operated and water flow is measured. Every 5th year, an Internal Obstruction Assessment is to be performed during the annual test.

This document establishes the minimum requirements for the periodic inspection, testing, and maintenance of water-based fire protection systems, including land-based and marine applications.
The types of systems addressed by this standard include, but are not limited to, sprinkler, standpipe and hose, fixed water spray, and foam water. Included are the water supplies that are part of these systems, such as private fire service mains and appurtenances, fire pumps and water storage tanks, and valves that control system flow. The document also addresses impairment handling and reporting. This standard applies to fire protection systems that have been properly installed in accordance with generally accepted practices. Where a system has not been installed in accordance with generally accepted practices, the corrective action is beyond the scope of this standard. The corrective action to ensure that the system performs in a satisfactory manner shall be in accordance with the appropriate installation standard.
This standard shall not apply to sprinkler systems designed and installed in accordance with NFPA 13D, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems in One-and Two-Family Dwellings and Manufactured Homes. A.1.1 Generally accepted NFPA installation practices for water-based fire protection systems relevant to this standard are found in the following:
For systems originally installed in accordance with one of these standards, the repair, replacement, alteration or extension of such systems should also be performed in accordance with that same standard. When original installations are based on other applicable codes or standards, repair, replacement, alteration, or extension practices should be conducted in accordance with those other applicable codes or standards.
