Central Stations Face Off Against NFPA On Fire Monitoring

By: Dan Gelinas, Published on Sep 18, 2018

Central stations are facing off against the NFPA over what they call anti-competitive language in NFPA 72, the standard [link no longer available] that covers fire alarms. The central stations say the NFPA is unfairly favoring municipalities but the NFPA contends it is following an established democratic process.

In this note we examine:

  • What Happened
  • Contested Language
  • NFPA Speaks Up To IPVM
  • What Central Stations Say
  • Alleges Eliminating Competition From Private Industry
  • NFPA Rebuts, AHJ Still Needs To Approve
