What Is a Critical Defect in Fire Protection?
A critical defect in your fire protection system is a defect that is likely to render the installation inoperable or is likely to have a significant impact on the safety of the occupants of the building. Basically, a critical defect cannot be ignored in fire protection and fire maintenance. For example, a defect in your fire pump that renders the fire hydrant faulty would be considered a critical defect.
