4/18/2012 FYIThis is a courtesy review at the request of Kenny Rankin - CSFD. The plans reviewed have "As Resubmitted 4/4/12" written in pencil on the top-right of the first page. The construction plans are currently disapproved. Please see the previous disapproval comments. Each of these comments will need to be addressed in writing at the next submittal. The information on the civil/utility plans looked acceptable in terms of fire hydrant location and flow. On sheet C-2, there is indication of the fire department connection (FDC) as part of the fire sprinkler supply line. I would suggest a wall mount FDC. Also, there must be an exterior water-flow indicator (horn/strobe) located within 20 feet of the FDC. I was not able to find any indication of an exterior water-flow indicator on any sheet of the preliminary plans.
FYICourtesy review continued... Fire Protection Comments - this is a preliminary report based only on the information provided in the special systems sheets (E1.5 & E1.6) A full submittal for both the fire alarm and fire sprinkler system will be required by a license fire protection contractor. The submittal must include full design drawings, calculations, and product information sheets. A pull station needs to be added by the left, rear apparatus bay man door. The environment of the SCBA room, Geo pump room, and storage rooms 202 & 223 may not be an appropriate environment for smoke detectors if the will be dusty or humid. Confirm the environment won't subject smoke detectors to false activations. The smoke detectors in the upper hall outside the bunks room need to be installed as close tot he bunk rooms as possible to prevent false alarms due to steam from the bathrooms. A smoke detector needs to be added in the two bunk room, in the officer room. In addition, add audible notification in officer rooms 215 or 216 to meet minimum sound level values. The location of the fire alarm control panel is not shown. This either needs to be located at the main entrance to the fire stations, or have a full function remote annunciator located at the main entrance.
