NYC buildings (residential and commercial) are required by law to have inspection regimens if they have fire sprinkler systems with more than 32 heads. The Fire Department of New York regularly, issues violations when these requirements are not met. Monthly, quarterly, and annual inspections are mandatory and the FDNY must witness your flow test once every five years.
Property Managers Need to Know
Building owners are responsible for the testing and maintenance of the fire alarm system. Owners are also required to maintain records for all inspections and store them in the same building as the fire sprinkler system. If you do not meet this requirement and are found guilty of violating Fire Code laws, you may be required to appear in front of a judge at a court hearing.
Inspections are based on the system installed and should follow the National Fire Alarm Code Standards. The inspector should also hold a Certificate of Fitness of City-Wide Sprinkler Systems.
