FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) FIRE FLOW TESTING: PRIOR TO FINAL FIRE INSPECTIONS, it is the responsibility of the owners, GC, or site manager to have all new and existing fire hydrants, and/or private water systems flow tested. Previous tests dated within the past 5 years will be accepted. ALL HYDRANT TESTS SHALL BE CONDUCTED BEFORE ON-SITE CONSTRUCTION IS STARTED!!! PUBLIC/CITY OWNED HYDRANTS: Contact SEAN HIGBEE, CSU at 668-4595 or via email at shigbee@csu.org to schedule an ACTUAL flow test. Be sure to provide them with a CSFD plan review number to include with their flow reports. CSFD need not be present when City Utilities flow tests hydrants as we will accept their reports.

FYI(STANDARD COMMENT) FIRE EXTINGUISHERS - MULTI-FAMILY RESIDENTIAL OCCUPANCIES OPTION #1 -- Install 2A-10B:C fire extinguishers at a rate of 1 unit per 3000 squre feet, AND a maximum of 75-ft travel distance. These extinguishers are to be located in the common areas of the complex. History shows they are often stolen, therefore option 2 is highly recommend. OPTION #2 -- Install (1) 1A-10B:C ext. in each apartment/town home. It's ok to hang under a kitchen sink, in a closet, or in an ATTACHED garage, just remember to make sure it's accessible Install extinguishers in highly visible and accessible locations, never in a dead-end area, and always try to place them near an exit pathway or at an exit(s). Mount 4" off floor to a maximum of 5 ft. to the top of the fire ext. (HINT: About waist high is perfect.) "FIRE EXTINGUISHER" signs may need to be posted too properly identify where the units are located if they're not highly visible.
