On Saturday March 14th members of Flagtown Fire joined by fellow brothers from Lyons Fire Department attended a class at the Chubb Loss Prevention Lab in Warren Township.  Members listened to a Loss Prevention and systems specialist explain how sprinkler systems operate under fire conditions and how crews can secure these systems after a fire.  Members also reviewed fire alarm systems, fire alarm panels and types of alarms as they pertain to a sprinkler activation.  The class ended with a small fire lit under controlled conditions so members could see a sprinkler activation as well as practice securing the system and clearing the alarms.  This class was extremely beneficial not only as a review for some senior members, but also Officers were able to explain certain township systems as they were demonstrated right in front all the members!  It’s not often firefighters can see all of these systems from start to finish under live fire conditions.Sprinkler Class - 03-14-2014 - Chubb Loss Prevention Lab Foelsch 001 Sprinkler Class - 03-14-2014 - Chubb Loss Prevention Lab Foelsch 002 Sprinkler Class - 03-14-2014 - Chubb Loss Prevention Lab Foelsch 003 Sprinkler Class - 03-14-2014 - Chubb Loss Prevention Lab Mike 001 Sprinkler Class - 03-14-2014 - Chubb Loss Prevention Lab Mike 002 Sprinkler Class - 03-14-2014 - Chubb Loss Prevention Lab Mike 004
