Webinar Details Learn how to avoid common inspection issues and what to do when fire protection systems include alarm systems.

  • 1. Identify time- and money-saving approaches to plan submittal and field inspections by first understanding the expectations of the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
  • 2. Recognize the coordination that is necessary among other trades for scheduling and conducting inspections. 
  • 3. Describe how impairments and unwanted alarm transmissions can be avoided through basic alarm system awareness.
