Remote Station and Protected Premises Fire Alarm Systems

Remote Stations

Transmission Means

Early remote stations were typically limited in what was available for transmission of signals from the protected premises top the remote station.  Most systems used supervised leased telephone lines. As time has passed, and technologies have improved, any of the allowable transmission methods listed in NFPA 72 can be used for remote station connections.

Retransmission of the signals from the remote station to emergency responders must be immediate.  Obviously, if the remote station is the facility that dispatches emergency responders, they are immediately notified. The code allows a number of retransmission meansIn descending order of preference, retransmission will be by one of the following methods: A dedicated circuit that is independent of the public switched telephone network. A one-way, outgoing telephone at the remote station, using the public switched telephone network. A private radio system using the fire department frequency. Other methods approved by the AHJ. .
