Remote Station and Protected Premises Fire Alarm Systems

Remote Stations

Staffing

NFPA 72 requires Even though this is a requirement in NFPA 72, there are still many places acting as remote stations that will not have two or more operators on duty at all times. Some communities just can't afford the expense. Thus, the AHJ makes the determination that this is acceptable.all remote stations be manned by two (2) trained and competent people on duty at all times.  However, the personnel can be assigned other dutiesThis is meant to allow fire department personnel to be assigned other fire department-related duties, while still being responsible for the signals received on the alarm board. It also allows for the operators in an answering service to field other calls that come into the answering service..  But, other duties can't interfere with proper signal handling.

When a signal is received, the remote station operator(s) must notify the owner of the property, or the owner's designated representative.  This does not apply to public fire service dispatch centers, however, as the activities of responding units to the signal will take precedence.
