Effective June 1, 2019, the Springfield Fire Department will be instituting a new mandatory process for service providers who inspect and test some fire protection systems. The SFD has contracted with a third-party service, Brycer, to help them manage and mitigate risk in our community, and to help them enforce current codes and inspection requirements. **This applies to properties that are located within the city limits of Springfield, MO.**
All ITM (Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance) companies, like Atlas, will be required to submit all compliant & non-compliant fire system inspection and test reports to the Springfield Fire Department electronically using Brycer’s software, The Compliance Engine.
Along with this requirement, businesses and/or commercial property owners with affected fire alarm systems may start to receive proactive notifications of their testing requirements over the coming weeks and months, and the Springfield Fire Department will start to enforce existing code(s) more stringently and require more systems to be inspected regularly.
If you are a business or commercial property owner and you currently don’t have any of your systems inspected, or if you’re unsure if you have a system that requires testing, please give us a call for a free, no-pressure evaluation of your system(s) and your needs.
The systems that will be tracked starting June 1, 2019 are:
- Automatic Fire Sprinkler System
- Fire Alarm System
- Private Hydrant System
- Fire Pump
For concerns, questions, or just for more information regarding the new mandatory fire inspection process, please contact us at (417) 831-2866.
We look forward to partnering with you to better protect and serve our city. We are confident that this new initiative will benefit all of us and make our community safer.
