As described in OSHA 1910.1642, some concerns are associated with the selection, installation, m a i n t e ~ ~ and o p d o n of detection systems. .The number, spacing and ce location of devices must be in accordance with the nature of the devices. Following initiation of a signal by a detection device, the device m s be restored promptly. ut Detection devices must be maintained, tested and adjusted by trained personnel to maintain proper reliability. Devices must be protected and the response time of a device should ensure the objectives of its installation.

This unit has presented a general discussion. Details concerning the design, installation, wmmissioning, maintenance and testing of fire alarm systems can be found in the references listed below. NFPA 723 (National Fire Alarm Code) as well as OSHA 1910.1642 and OSHA 1910.165 set the requirements for detection and alarm systems. I a joint project, NFPA and Society of Fire Protection Engineers have published "Fire n Alarm Signaling Systemsw1 as a resource to help users apply the codes and standards and to act as a utilitarian guide for basic operational requirements.
