EPA Vessel Safety: Fire Detection and Alarm Systems Mobile App
This EPA Vessel Safety: Fire Detection and Alarm Systems Mobile App helps you comply with EPA standards for installing and maintaining a fire detection and alarm system for all Class C vessels.
How does it work?
While the USCG requirements for oceanographic and research vessels do not specify the installation of a manual fire alarm or an automatic fire detection system, it is EPA policy that all Class C vessels be provided with fire alarm and detection systems. If a vessel already has a fire detection and alarm system, it must be maintained. Use this app to install and maintain a smoke detector, heat detector, and automatic sprinkler system in proximity to power supply and alarm panel for life safety and protection purposes.
