Subject: Regulation for fire alarms in labs
Comments: cc: Mike Swain
Good morning Gentlemen and ladies,
I would like to ask you all a question. Are there any regulations when it
comes to laboratory structure (new or old structures)? Regulations or
requirements such fire alarm, fire-sprinkler heads, smoke detectors, etc.
Javier Medina
Hi Javier,
This is from our fire prevention officer Mike Swain. Good luck YM
There is no easy answer for this. It depends on the location of the labs
(city and State). New structures would be controlled by the local and state
fire codes. It would be the same for existing buildings depending on what
codes apply to that community or location. Mike
