Yellowstone National Park
Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho
Fire Protection Condition Assessments
Conducted fire protection, fire prevention, life safety and firefighting capability inspections at Yellowstone National Park to survey 218 buildings of varying size, use and age.
Inspections were performed of fire protection systems in accordance with NFPA 1, NFPA 101, and National Parks Service referenced standards (including RM58). Limited testing of the fire protection and life safety systems was also performed as a part of the assessment.
The data generated from these assessments was used to generate baseline Facility Condition Indices (FCI) for the NPS as well as to help parks estimate annual ITM costs for their installed fire protection systems, and help parks build out their preventative maintenance/work order management system.
The work consisted of travel to the park sites, performance of on-site inspections of each building within the scope of the contract, documentation of inspection data via web-based reporting database that tied to their work order system, coordination with the Authority Having Jurisdiction as to which deficiencies should be costed and then completing Class C cost estimates, and providing an executive summary of assessments detailing significant deficiencies.
The information gathered during the site visits was utilized to assess the overall structural fire safety at the representative sites. This information was interpolated to other facilities of a similar use and size to provide an overall assessment of NPS buildings and structures at the park. The scope of the services was broken into three separate phases of work.
