Justification

Numerous existing facilities are in need of modern, basic life-safety systems. In many older facilities, there are no emergency generators, fire alarms, or sprinklers. Emergency generators are critical to support fire alarms and fire pumps during power outages. Some facilities are 24-hour residential facilities. In case of fire, there could be a significant potential exposure to loss of life and property. Most of the facilities do not meet code and have outdated fire alarm systems for which spare parts are no longer available and which can no longer be kept in reliable operation.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 County facilities 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 The outdated systems need to be replaced and upgraded to provide improved protection to County employees and County properties. "The Third Report of the Infrastructure Maintenance Task Force (March 2010)" identified an annual level of effort for life safety systems based on a 25-year lifespan.
