Best Defense is familiar with all the codes relevant to CBRF, Daycare, and Nursing home fire alarm requirements in Wisconsin. We can assist you in designing a fire alarm system or sprinkler system to meet code requirements and will provide and submit to the State of Wisconsin a comprehensive plan review package for your installation.
In particular, Wisconsin CBRF's have unique and specific fire alarm codes. Wisconsin Statutes, Section 50.035 requires all CBRF's to have a low voltage interconnected fire alarm, Wisconsin Administrative Code DHS 83.43 spells out the specific requirements for detector placement and inspection. Each of these codes require the systems to be installed to NFPA72 installation standards.
Best Defense also provides annual fire alarm inspections and fire alarm sensitivity testing for CBRF's, Hospitals, Daycare Facilities, and Nursing homes to meet DHS 83 and NFPA72 testing requirements. We offer a comprehensive set of testing tools including barcoding for each of your devices to track the inspection and hi-tech smoke detector sensitivity testing equipment.
