Authorities and Requirements

Summary

Authorities and Power Supplies

Although the two items discussed in this module are not directly related, they are both extremely important issues.

Fire alarm systems are required in certain occupancies by some specific code, such as a Building Code, but an Authority Having Jurisdiction may ultimately decide the extent of a system’s installation. Technically, there are two types of AHJ: those with the power of the law, like fire marshals and building officials, and those with the power of economics, such as insurance companies.

Those with the power of law can stop an operation, and those with the power of the economy can make it difficult to operate. If an insurance company cancels the policy, it will be very risky for that company to operate, as their exposure to loss is not “covered.”
