In an effort to describe procedures for installing, testing, and maintaining fire alarm systems, NECA recently published NECA 305-2001, Standard for Fire Alarm Systems Job Practices, the latest addition to its National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS) series. The document is based on requirements of the National Fire Alarm Code and is intended to be referenced in contract documents for electrical construction projects.

NECA 305-2001 is the 15th NEIS to be published and the 13th to be approved by the American National Standards Institute. It is available for $25 and can be ordered via phone at (301) 215-4504 or through the association’s Web site, www.neca-neis.org/catalog.
