THE MOORE-WILSON SIGNALING REPORT
---------------------------------

QUESTION #1274
--------------
I want to get an overall understanding of fire alarms, codes,
installation, etc. I want to be able to inspect systems with
confidence. What do you suggest?

ANSWER
------
We would suggest you begin with attendance at all of the fire alarm
system seminars provided by the Automatic Fire Alarm Association
(see www.affa.org). Also pick up a copy of the NEMA Fire Alarm Systems
Training Manual from the AFAA and a copy of the National Fire Alarm
Code Handbook from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
These will give you an overall background to understanding fire alarm
systems and should go a long way in helping you develop confidence in
your inspection of these systems.

Wayne Moore and Dean Wilson are senior engineers at Hughes Associates,
Inc., a leading international provider of engineering and research
services to the fire protection field, including fire hazard and risk
