Your building is probably subject to most or all of the following codes/ordinances:
NFPA 72 - National Fire Prevention Association These are the nationally agreed upon fire prevention codes. Which edition you are subject to is based on which edition has be reviewed and legally adopted.Life-Safety (NFPA 101) - These are the "danger to life" codes covering all aspects of building classification, architectural standards, building maintenance, egress, evacuation, and anything else pertaining to life saving requirements and practices.
Americans with Diabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) - These laws don't apply to every building classification and there are exceptions to many of the specific clauses. However, ADA does apply to some fire alarm installation details. In public buildings ADA dictates special physical access conditions and considerations.
Installation, maintenance, service, required regular inspections and central station monitoring (using telephone lines, celluar telephone or radio reporting systems listed for that use with fire alarms), are the sole responsibility of the building owner(s).
Finding and keeping a quality fire alarm service company is the only way to assure someone is watching your system, meeting the code and limiting your liability.
