The scope of the project encompasses fire alarms with voice capabilities, sprinkler activation for fire suppression, fire and smoke detection flow and tamper switches, and smoke control systems.

Cost Change

Justification

Numerous fire/rescue stations are in need of modern, basic life safety systems. In many older fire/rescue stations, there are no fire alarms or sprinklers. In case of fire, there could be significant exposure to loss of life and property. Several fire and rescue stations do not meet codes and have outdated fire alarm systems for which spare parts are no longer available and which can no longer be kept in reliable operation. Many of these fire/rescue stations were built years ago, and thus, were grandfathered under the fire code since the occupancy category has not changed. The outdated systems need to be replaced and updated to provide improved protection and comply with current codes.
