Arbor Inspections Provides Fire Suppression Inspections in Washtenaw County, MI
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." Over the years, additional acts, codes, and amendments for fire safety evolved from this very significant landmark act. We will never know how many lives have been saved, and how many properties and buildings may have been spared.
The necessity of fire suppression systems cannot be understated. Its first purpose is to save lives, and next, to extinguish fires before they start, or at least to minimize damage. Fire suppression systems may be Antifreeze Systems, Wet Systems, Dry Systems, or other systems, and each require inspections according to the Fire Safety Rules and Code Requirements.
