Important Safety Notice – Fire Pumps

ASTTBC Fire Protection Technicians are qualified to inspect and test only – under no circumstance can they alter, modify or repair a Fire Pump or related equipment.

Example of an issue: A technician arrives on site to test a fire pump, opens the controller and accidentally drops a tool inside of it.

Reminder:

RFPT’s are only permitted to test the pump

RFPT’s can take measurements from the exterior of the pump controller.

RFPT’s are not permitted to open or enter the controller.

An electrician should be present if access to the controller is required.
