Remote Station and Protected Premises Fire Alarm Systems

Summary

Remote Station

Remote station supervisory systems are used when there is no other form of supervising station required by an authority, or desired by the owner.  Connections to a remote station tend to be less costly.

The remote station can be in a number of locations, such as fire departments or community dispatch centers, but have been other locations with constant attendance, such as local answering services.  These locations have to be able to dispatch the fire department.

Staffing and record keeping are outlined in NFPA 72.  There must be two operators on duty that can handle calls in the remote station, but one can be assigned other duties.  Records have to be maintained for at least a year, but the remote station will typically keep them longer than a year.
