Oakland County Fire Suppression Inspections by Arbor Inspections

The Fire Prevention Code of 1941 was enacted in Michigan to "provide for the prevention of fires and the protection of persons and property from exposure to the dangers of fire or explosion (and) to control the construction, use, and occupancy of buildings and premises in relation to safety, including fire safety." More codes, laws, and amendments for fire safety have been added to this very significant landmark act. Certainly, lives have been saved, and property spared as a result of these efforts.

The necessity of fire suppression systems cannot be understated. Saving lives is of the utmost importance and the purpose of fire safety. Stopping fires before they start, or at least minimizing damage to property, is second. Fire suppression systems may be antifreeze systems, wet systems, dry systems, or another suppression system, but and each requires routine inspections according to the fire safety code requirements.
