C.2.6 To check all landing valves of internal and external hydrants, isolating valves and replace the defective ones whenever necessary. C.2.7 To check automatic operation of entire system by opening landing valves at different locations. C.2.8 To conduct fire drill at regular interval.
For achieving the objectives of Para C.1.1 and meeting the requirement of Para C.2 periodical testing and checking the system is essential. Various activities and their duration have been tabulated in Table C.1. C.4 PROCEDURE
C.4.1 Though the fire fighting system operation is automatic, however for daily checking and attending to the system in case of operation, a trained pump operator shall be available round the clock. C.4.2 Operation and Maintenance instructions shall be available in the pump room and fire control room. C.4.3 Water for fire fighting purpose is not to be used for any other purpose. However in order avoid stagnation, the same shall be changed / cleaned regularly. C.4.4 Maintaining Diesel Engine is very important for the system operation since during fire, powder supply is deliberately switched off. Annual Maintence Contract (AMC) of engine shall be given to the authorized service center of engine manufacturer. Adequate diesel should either be available in the pump house or near by so that operation is not discontinued for want of diesel. C.4.5 if any out let is found to be defective and replacement is not easily available the whole assembly should be removed and be replaced by blank off plate so that the system remains operational. C.4.6 hose reels shall be subjected to regular inspection to ensure that all valves are functional, out let nozzle not chocked. At least once in a year the same shall be subjected to operation to ensure that hose reel in good condition and that the coupling joints are water tight. Flow should also be checked for the leakage of hose reel. C.4.7 All isolating valves shall be checked for operation. The valve in closed position be opened and closed couple of times and the valves in open position be closed and opened couple of times so that when required, the valves perform their function. C.4.8 Hose pipes and their couplings shall be checked to ensure there is no leakage during their use. The female coupling cam tooth mechanism be operated and lubricated for ensuring ease of operation. C.4.9 Powder supply to the pump house is not be discontinued for any reason. Alternative arrangement shall be made in case any feeding switch gear is under repair / replacement.
C.4.10 It has to be ensured that there are no obstructions in front of the hydrants impending accessibility. C.5 FIRE
For making the users familiar with the system, fire drill shall be carried out once in six months. Local fire service and nodal officers in charge of various parts of the building shall be involved in conducting fire drill. Operation of the system shall be demonstrated so that all users are confident of the system and aware of their duties and responsibilities during fire.
