I’m quite certain that it’s beyond our scope to enforce anything beyond the Code requirements. We can advise them if there is an issue in regards to NFPA 25 but can’t enforce it. It would make SO much more sense if the Fire Code required NFPA 25 just like it does NFPA 10 for extinguishers or S536 for alarm systems.

Good point Joe about the insurance. With my VOs, I’ve advised them to ensure if they have any specific regulations under their governing body that supersede the Fire Code. My hospital and group homes have confirmed that Fire Code is all that they require. I’m not sure off the top of my head about the retirement homes but I think they also are Fire Code. I didn’t think about insurance companies…I’ll keep that in mind next time it comes up.
