Fire Pump Acceptance Testing and NFPA 25 Testing

Fire Pump Acceptance Testing and NFPA 25 Testing
This webinar will look at answering important questions including “How do I pretest my pump so that I pass my acceptance test with the AHJ?” and “What are the different periodic tests I should be trained to execute?”

Fire pumps are a critical part of an automatic sprinkler system. NFPA 20, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection, and NFPA 25 provide requirements on the initial acceptance testing and periodic testing of this vital system component. This webinar will look at the difference between the acceptance test and the “post-occupancy” periodic tests.

A senior member of NFPA and AFSA faculties, Caputo has written and presented seminars throughout the world on fire protection and life safety systems and is a regular speaker at AFSA and NFPA conventions. Caputo’s industry distinctions include “Fire Prevention Officer of the Year” from San Diego County in 1994; “Man of the Year” from Fire Protection Contractor magazine in 1997; and the Henry S. Parmelee award from AFSA in 2017. Caputo attended the University of Albuquerque, New Mexico and is a U.S. Navy veteran and former volunteer fire fighter.
