1 Rancho Cucamonga Fire Protection District Prevention Bureau Standard Title: Fire Alarm and Monitoring Systems Standard # 9-3 Effective: May 2002 Number of Pages: 7 Revised: January 2014 INTENT The intent of this standard is to provide regulations consistent with local needs for the installation, repair, modification, inspection, testing, and maintenance of fire alarm systems, sprinkler waterflow and supervisory systems, and the devices and programming associated with these systems. AUTHORITY This standard is in accordance with RCFPD Ordinance FD 54, the 2013 California Fire Code, and the applicable Standards of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). DEFINITIONS The terms used in this standard are intended to be consistent with the Building Code, the Fire Code, NFPA 72, and state regulations and have the same definitions as the definitions contained in those documents. ADOPTED STANDARD 1. General Automatic and/or manual fire alarm systems and sprinkler waterflow and supervisory systems shall be designed, installed, inspected, tested, and maintained in accordance with the provisions of the Fire Code, NFPA 72, and this standard. 2. Combination Systems a. Combination systems shall be in accordance with the Fire Code and NFPA 72. Exception: Burglar/intrusion security system features and/or devices shall not be integrated with fire alarm systems or sprinkler waterflow and supervisory systems. b. Burglar/intrusion alarm systems shall not include fire detection and/or notification features or devices unless the system control unit and all devices are listed by the State Fire Marshal for fire alarm use. c. Previously approved combination fire alarm or sprinkler waterflow and supervisory systems that contain security system features and/or devices may remain in service if: i. The security devices and the control unit have been approved by the State Fire Marshal as fire alarm system components, and ii. The burglar/intrusion devices and/or features do not cause false or unwanted fire alarms. d. Required alterations to a previously approved combination system shall be in accordance with Item 7 of this standard. RCFPD Standard #

2 3. Detectors a. Automatic fire detectors installed for the protection of the fire alarm system control unit or sprinkler waterflow and supervisory system control unit shall be combination fixed temperature and rate of rise heat detectors where ambient conditions are such that the installation of smoke detectors could reasonably be expected to result in false alarms. For example, when the system control unit is installed in a room required by Section 509 of the Fire Code as amended, a heat detector shall be installed for the protection of the system control unit. b. To comply with the Fire Code s notification requirements for duct detectors installed in occupancies that do not require a fire alarm system, duct detectors may be connected to a sprinkler waterflow and supervisory system. c. When monitored by the system control unit, duct detectors shall be provided with remote annunciator lamps and remote test switches located on the ceiling or wall in the vicinity of the detector. d. Unless otherwise required by the Building Code, the Fire Code, NFPA 72, or other state regulation, the activation of a duct detector shall cause a supervisory signal only. Such signals shall be consistent with the provisions of NFPA 72 for supervisory signals. e. All smoke and heat detectors, including those installed for elevator recall, door release service, and/or smoke spread control, shall be installed and function in accordance with the Fire Code and NFPA Elevator Recall a. Elevator recall shall be in accordance with the Building Code, the Fire Code, applicable state regulations, and NFPA 72. b. In buildings without a fire alarm system, elevator recall service shall not be provided by the sprinkler waterflow and supervisory system. A separate elevator recall control and supervisory control unit shall be provided for elevator recall service. 5. Identification of Alarm Zones and Device Locations a. A diagram that corresponds to the floor plan for the building or space in which a monitored system is installed shall be posted in a conspicuous and readily accessible location acceptable to the fire code official. This diagram shall identify the location of each system component and shall use the same identifying language that is programmed into the system for the individual zones and/or devices. See Item 10 below. Existing diagrams will need to be updated when fire alarm systems are modified. b. Doors providing access to rooms or areas where the fire alarm control unit is located shall be labeled FACU Inside. For exterior doors, this identification shall consist of a permanent, weather-resistant sign or letters. The lettering shall be at least three inches in height. Signs shall have a red background with white lettering. Adhesive or stenciled letters are typically red but can be any color approved by the fire code official which contrasts with the color of the door or door glazing. Interior doors shall be identified in a manner acceptable to the fire code official. 6. Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance a. Upon completion of any repairs and/or modifications for which a permit was required and issued, the contractor shall provide the fire code official with a record of completion that is equivalent to the Fire Alarm and Emergency Communication System Record of Completion contained in NFPA 72. RCFPD Standard #

3 b. Inspection, testing, and maintenance of fire alarm and sprinkler waterflow and supervisory systems shall be in accordance with the Fire Code and the applicable NFPA standards. c. Inspection, testing, and maintenance shall be performed only by personnel who meet one or more of the service personnel qualifications found in NFPA 72. d. Prior to commencing any inspection, testing, and/or maintenance, the supervising station shall be notified that authorized work is being performed on the system and that alarm signals received at the supervising station shall not be transmitted to the Fire Dispatch Center until such time that the supervising station has been notified that the work on the system is completed.

Only the supervising station shall be notified of authorized work on the system. Service personnel are not authorized to contact the Fire Dispatch Center. Contacting the Fire Dispatch Center for non-emergency reasons will result in the service person being billed for the cost of a non-emergency call for service to the dispatch center. e. Personnel performing required inspections, testing, and maintenance shall provide the fire code official with a report that is equivalent to the Fire Alarm and Emergency Communication System Inspection and Testing Form contained in NFPA 72 or the Fire District s Fire Alarm Service/Test Report. f. Acceptance test reports shall include a copy of the supervising station s activity report for the protected premise. This report shall include the entire time period of the acceptance test. 7.

These devices do not need to be interconnected with any other fire alarm device or system, do not require a control unit, do not need to be electrically supervised, and do not need emergency power. The manual fire alarm box and the notification device shall be attached to the structure. An electrical permit issued by the Building & Safety Department is required to install this fire alarm signaling equipment. RCFPD Standard #

4 9. Manual Fire Alarm Boxes and Protective Covers a. Manual fire alarm boxes shall not be installed on sprinkler waterflow and supervisory systems or elevator recall control systems. b. When the Fire Code allows the elimination of manual fire alarm boxes due to the installation of fire sprinklers, manual fire alarm boxes shall not be installed. c. In existing buildings that are protected throughout with a fire sprinkler system, manual fire alarm boxes may be removed upon approval of the fire code official if the current Fire Code would not otherwise require the installation of manual fire alarm boxes. d.
