The Compliance Engine continues to improve fire safety in Rockville, with a 30% reduction in unwanted fire alarm and sprinkler activations citywide.
The service allows oversight by Rockville’s fire marshal and Inspection Services Division of fire alarm, sprinkler, smoke control and commercial cooking extinguisher systems installed within commercial and multifamily dwellings in the City of Rockville.
This facilitates a more efficient review, tracking and follow-up process with building owners to correct deficiencies and maintain systems.
The system, which allows for accurate and timely inspection reporting and tracking of those fire-protection systems, has meant greater safety and protection for the community.
Of the 2,083 fire protection systems in the city, 1,313 (63%) are current on annual inspections. Of the 2,083 systems, 1,933 (90%) were found compliant due to ongoing inspection and testing, and prompt repairs when deficiencies were found.
