Good morning Mike,
Fire Underwriters references NFPA 1142 which has a form specifically for dry hydrant inspection and maintenance.
I can scan and send a copy to you if you wish.
My email is [email protected] .
We currently use FireHouse software. We have adapted the program to generate orders rather than reports and have found it quite useful.
It is easy to pull up statistical reports on fires prevention and fire suppression activities.
It has been my experience that we do not have jurisdiction over the Provincial Parks. With that said, I have developed a good working relationship with the staff at our local park and they have been very respectful in times of fire bans as they are committed to the preservation of their parks not to mention a Provincial commitment to ensure that their facilities are compliant with the provisions of the Fire Code. If there is an ongoing concern that cannot be resolved, I would suggest that the OFMEM be advised as the Provincial Authority and either have them address the issue or obtain direction on how to proceed.
When the photos are taken they are entered into our notebooks under the photo log. This log includes the picture number as identified by the camera the date and time the photograph was taken and a description of the photograph. Along with the digital pictures being saved to the electronic file, the photos are then printed and labelled and placed in the notebook. I can send you a copy of both our investigation and inspection notebook if you would like. Also with digital images; if possible set your camera up to save the image in both raw and jpeg format. The raw format can show the court the photo has not been modified.
