Listed below is a subset of the guidance given by NFPA.

NFPA recommends the following steps:

  1. NFPA codes and standards (NFPA 25, NFPA 72®, NFPA 101®) require all commercial and multi-occupancy residential buildings to maintain fully operational fire and life safety systems.
  2. Vital to the operation of these life safety systems is adherence to expected schedules for inspection, testing and maintenance (ITM). If those responsible for building safety are unable to perform their duties, they should contact their local AHJ.
  3. Public and private employees who perform ITM and other responsibilities for these systems must be deemed essential workers. Workers (including contracted vendors) performing security for healthcare and banking entities, as well as those who maintain digital systems infrastructure to support law enforcement and emergency service operations are a key part of maintaining the nation’s critical infrastructure.
  4. Most ITM requirements can be provided by a single ITM service provider, thus limiting the need for face-to-face interaction. When two individuals are required, the tasks can be accomplished via two‑way radio.

ADT Commercial provides these essential services to help our commercial clients reduce risk to their properties and people—even if office locations are closed during times of crisis.

By prioritizing the inspection, maintenance and monitoring of your fire and life safety systems, you can significantly minimize risk to your facilities and any essential occupants as circumstances continue to evolve during an uncertain time.
