Fire Protection Services
National Park Service, Nationwide
EBL's experience with performing Fire Protection Condition Assessments (FPCA’s) for the National Park Service (NPS) is extensive.
Our inspections and visual field surveys with the National Park Service has taken us into almost every conceivable building occupancy that exists within the NPS inventory of buildings.
For every site, we generated an executive summary, 7-page code evaluation checklist, an occupancy specific checklist and hydrant waterflow testing/water supply evaluation. From these checklists, specific code deficiencies were generated for each building, as well as, overall park water supply deficiencies (if applicable). Those deficiencies were entered into a website maintained by the Structure Fire Program in Boise, ID. In addition, Class C estimates of probable construction cost were assigned to relevant deficiencies.
