Arbor Inspections Provides Fire Suppression Inspections in Wayne County, MI
In 1941 the Fire Prevention Code was enacted 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." Fire inspectors, fire extinguishing agents, and requirements for inspection followed. Over the years, additional acts, codes, and amendments for fire safety evolved from this very significant landmark act. It is impossible to know how many lives have been saved, and how many properties and buildings spared.
Early detection and warning are the purposes of fire suppression systems, first to save lives, and secondly, to extinguish fires before they start, or at least to minimize damage. The systems that achieve this are called fire suppression systems, and they must be inspected regularly according to Fire Codes.
