Course Description: Fire sprinkler systems rely on adequate water supplies to provide proper protection.  This webinar provides an overview of water supply evaluation and testing based on NFPA 291 ‘Recommended Practice for Fire Flow Testing and Marking of Hydrants’. Participants will learn about using a public water system and why it is critical to understand the capabilities and limitations of the water supply prior to starting the fire sprinkler system design. Discussion will include the risk created when there is not a reliable water supply and the potential impact to the facility, occupants and emergency responders. The presenter will cover when a water flow test should be conducted and the key factors to evaluate during water supply analysis.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the water flow testing requirements for sprinkler design
• Discuss the key factors to consider in a water supply analysis
• Review and explain the results of water supply testing
