PRESENTATION: An Overview of Off-Premise Signaling and Supervising Station Requirements

This course will cover the technologies used to transmit fire alarm signals from the protected premise to the supervising station, along with the requirements found in NFPA 72 for these technologies. We will also discuss where the NFPA 72 requirements end, and where FCC and other regulations apply.

We will also cover the requirements for action taken by the Supervising Station in the event of a fire alarm, supervisory or trouble signal.
