Fire pumps are an integral part of commercial sprinkler systems and work in tandem with fire and life safety systems to protect people, buildings, and assets in case of a fire emergency. Fire pumps are required when municipal water systems can’t provide adequate pressure to meet the demands of a building’s sprinkler system, such as in high-rise buildings, or systems that disperse large amounts of water. Additionally, fire pumps are needed when water is provided from a storage tank.
Because of the importance of these systems, according to the NFPA 20, fire pump systems must be installed by qualified personnel including factory-trained and certified personnel, personnel certified by a national recognized fire protection organization, or personnel who are registered, licensed, or certified by a state or local authority. Additionally, inspections and servicing must be completed by these trained or certified personnel.
