Greetings,

Suspected issues with most new builds are that the contractors are installing the devices ahead of the cleaners…BRK sent me a power point that I can send to OMFPOA admin to upload if they want it. The drywall and construction dust can take couple days to settle in a new build after clean up. Partnering with building officials to hold off on granting occupancy until the places are finished, cleaned and literally the dust settles before installing the life safety devices are worthy of preventing false alarms. The last big new subdivision in our municipality we were attending every few days until we had the onsite contractor go and clean the smokes throughout the subdivision. And no more false alarms in the last 6 weeks.

If anyone whats the power point send me an email [email protected]
