Frank,

Sorry for the late reply, I just realized you commented a few weeks ago…

If/when I get reports indicating inspect/test to NFPA 25 with deficiencies, but those deficiencies are NOT part of Pt 6, I advise the owner/owner representative that it’s beyond the minimum standards that I can enforce and OFC is the min level they are legally required to meet. Hose cabinet hose maintenance for example is one area that is literally a waste of money considering buildings don’t have trained staff to use them and every FD I’ve ever spoken with will never use them due to lack of required testing.

I also usually tell them that it were my building, I’d be going with NFPA 25 and not OFC just for my own piece of mind.
