Fire Safety and Education
October 9th - 15th (100 years of fire prevention)
Within the coming days, the crews will be stopping by all the businesses in town to perform a pre-incident planning where they look for any building or site features that we would need to know such as the closest hydrant location, fire department connections, sprinkler riser rooms and etc. While these are going on, the crews may point out some possible fire code deficiencies that will give the business the opportunity to get them corrected prior to the Fire Marshal visiting for an official inspection.
There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about home sprinklers. TV and movies like to dramatize sprinklers when one gets activated, they all start spraying water. Or that burnt cooking will set them off. These are not the case, and your local Nolensville Fire & Rescue Department is willing and able to help educate you on your own home sprinkler. Feel free to contact us for questions or an at home explanation of how your sprinkler system works.
Here is a video from the US Fire Administration explaining some of these myths and how they really work.
Here is what you can expect from the Nolensville Fire Marshal's Office. Our goal is to educate the property owners or business managers on fire safety and relevant codes to allow them to understand our purpose. We are more than happy to perform walkthroughs to give the opportunity to know what is deficient.
We will perform an annual life safety and fire code inspection. This is based off of ordinance 21-04 adopting the 2018 International Fire Code and 2018 NFPA 101 Life Safety Code. All fire and life safety system inspection, testing, and maintenance will be submitted by your service provider through Inspection Reporting Online (IROL) please verify that they are registered with IROL at www.InspectionReportsOnline.net and you can register as a business owner to login to your account to verify your testing is submitted and you are compliant.
The Nolensville Fire Marshal's Office is dedicated to keeping our community safe through conducting an origin and cause investigation on every fire. This could potentially notify the public for faulty appliances or electrical equipment or help keep an arsonist off the streets.
Help burn an arsonist!
