Fall greetings from FLSA! A terrific time of year as the leaves begin to change, cool breezes reemerge and football is in full swing.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recommends inspection and winterization of all commercial fire sprinkler systems every year.

As we approach winter, our service division would like to remind you of winter related preparations to consider toward the maintenance of your fire sprinkler systems in your facilities.

Winterizing fire sprinkler systems is a critical service needed to reduce the chance of water damage caused when water leaks from a broken pipe due to frozen water (ref: NFPA 13, NFPA 25 requirements).

FLSA can provide winterization services as a standalone service call or as part of the annual and/or quarterly inspection services agreement.

Winterization should always be performed prior to the on-set of cold weather and may be performed by the customer (owner) or by a certified FLSA technician or inspector.

FLSA offers comprehensive test, inspection and maintenance services on fire alarm, sprinkler and suppression systems.
