How do we keep this complex fire system Operationally Ready?

If you’ve gone through the entire blog on the fire system, you would appreciate the sheer amount of engineering involved in keeping a high rise home safe from fire. Like the airbags in a car. No one wishes for an incident that requires these systems to kick in. But in the event that something does happen, it’s good to know that the machinery is primed and ready to use. 

To ensure operational readiness of the whole fire system; water in the entire fire system is drained once every week into a tank for cleaning and thereafter the fire system is recharged by all its three pumps. Hence the operational readiness of the three pump system is checked for deployment readiness on a weekly basis.
