The state fire code requires operational fire protection systems in certain occupancies, however, there may be times during the life of the occupancy that these systems become inoperative or are absent.  This situation often occurs at the time of new construction and remodeling, or it may also be the result of an emergency situation.
Every effort shall be made by the owner to return the system to an operational and code conforming state.  In order to limit the disruption of everyday business and routine the following procedures have been established. These procedures will allow occupancy of a building while the fire protection system installation or repair is progressing.  This procedure is established as a remedy for a temporary situation. The use of a “Fire Watch” may not be implemented or extended without permission and approval of the State Fire Marshal.
