Fire Inspector

You currently serve as the fire inspector for a municipal fire department and are considered the authority having
jurisdiction. A newly planned community is being developed within your jurisdiction, and you have the authority to approve
the fire protection water supply system prior to installation. Additionally, you will be responsible for ensuring that
inspections and testing of the fire protection water supply system are completed prior to the certification of any occupancy
within the planned community. The planned community includes single-family dwellings; multi-family dwellings;
commercial buildings, including businesses and mercantile occupancies; and assembly occupancies.
As part of your responsibilities as a fire inspector, you are to ensure that the appropriate type of hydrant is installed and
that spacing is in accordance with the local code based on the occupancy types.
In no less than two double-spaced pages, list the type of hydrant to be installed, and why. Also, describe how the hydrants
would be tested and maintained. Next, provide the spacing requirements based on your local jurisdictions requirements
(this could be where you reside). Include a diagram detailing these spacing requirements. Lastly, include the inspection
requirements and items to review in regards to the fire protection water supply system.
All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying
citations. Any references or citations used should be in APA style. Must have a reference page.
