Fire Protection System Shutdown Request Guideline

A. Introduction

The Fire Protection System Impairment Form is used by the UC Davis Fire Prevention Services to facilitate and coordinate planned, non-emergency impairments to any fire protection system (sprinkler, fire alarm, dry standpipe, wet standpipe, hydrant, etc.) on the UC Davis Campus. The form is also useful for informing the general public, project managers, and contractors about the requirements necessary for working on, or near, a system which has the potential of impacting an in-service fire protection system.

B. Basis for Requirements

This form was created by the campus Fire Alarm Committee to establish clear guidelines for planned impairments to the campus' fire protection systems. This form doesn't apply to the routine maintenance work conducted by the University Fire Department or Operations and Maintenance (O&M) Alarms Unit. Completion of this form will help coordinate fire protection system impairments in order to allow work to be done directly on any campus fire protection system, or one that might be adversely affected by the work being done. In addition, users affected by the impairment will be notified.

C. Use

The Fire Protection System Impairment Form is to be completed and submitted to UC Davis Fire Prevention Services for review and approval prior to beginning work on, or near, a system which has the potential of impacting an in-service fire protection system. After review and approval, the UC Davis representative must still follow the campus policy related to shutdowns by contacting the O&M Customer Service Center at (530)752-1655.
