What is an NFPA standard?
The NFPA is the National Fire Protection Association, a fire prevention and safety organization. The NFPA creates and publishes fire safety codes and standards to reduce the risk of fire. The NFPA has standards for each building’s sprinkler systems and alarm systems.
Fire safety inspectors will check sprinkler heads, pipes, flow water, pressure, valves, smoke detectors, pull stations, and batteries so that they comply with these codes and standards. Without these standards and codes, buildings would be at a high risk of fire danger.
