International Firefighter Magazine Article – June 2018 issue

We are proud to announce that International Firefighter Magazine published the article Offsite Laboratory Tests Recommended by NFPA 25 written by our Technical Director and Dyne founder, Joan Leedy.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

The National Fire Protection Association Standard for the Inspection, Testing and Maintenance of Water-Based Fire Protection Systems (NFPA 25) details recommended practices to prevent system failure and ensure fast and effective response in a fire emergency. Most of the recommended tasks are performed at the facility, where the system is located, either by the building owner or a qualified contractor.

However, in addition to these onsite tests, there are also recommendations to send a sample of a system component to a laboratory for testing. Here is a description of those tests that must be performed offsite at a recognized testing laboratory.
