The fire inspections have concluded. You will not hear ringing in your unit that is related to testing anymore without being notified prior by email. Any ringing of the alarms without prior notification should be treated as an emergency, and prompt you to evacuate the building.
All wall devices that were found to be deficient have been replaced. There were multiple units where sprinkler deficiencies were identified. Management will contact those units individually to schedule the replacement of the deficient sprinkler heads.
Your patience and cooperation though this required testing is greatly appreciated.
The in unit fire testing will begin on 4/12/2021 at 9:00 am. Unfortunately, the inspectors could not provide us with a schedule for what units will be tested each day. Please be aware that the alarms will be going off in all 230 units each time a unit is being inspected. This will make working from home very challenging because you will hear your devices sounding multiple times during the days of testing. The alarms can also be a concern for pet owners.
Do not tamper with the devices in your unit to attempt to silence them. Tampering with your in unit devices is illegal, and would compromise the safety of other residents because the devices are interconnected. All devices must remain connected to pass the fire inspection.
We understand that this in unit testing is a great challenge for many residents, and we wish there was an alternative approach for the inspections.
Your patience, and cooperation is greatly appreciated through the course of the required testing.
Fire Life Safety Annual Testing (Unit Access Needed)
National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Codes 25 & 72 mandate inspection of fire alarms and sprinkler heads annually. This is to ensure all devices function properly in the event of a fire. This includes inspection in all 230 condo units. To efficiently complete the annual inspections mandated by the NFPA we will need in/out access to all 230 units between 9:00 am and 5:00 pm for six (6) days starting on Monday April 12th, Tuesday April 13th, Wednesday April 14th, Thursday April 15th, Friday April 16th, and Monday April 19th 2021. Please notify Assistant Manager email@example.com by Monday, April 5th, 2021, if you intend to be home, or leave a key with Management.
