NFPA 25: Compliance Need Not Break the Bank

July 26th, 2010

Maintenance of water-based fire suppression systems can be a challenge in a down economy that is filled with corporate directives to cut costs. This session examines strategies for inspecting, testing, and maintaining systems in accordance with NFPA 25 without busting the budget. The session reviews cases where owners, AHJs, and service providers have worked together to manage the risk of loss from fire while keeping the costs as low as possible.

Russ Leavitt - NFPA 25 Compliance Need Not Break the Bank

Welcome from Russ Leavitt

May 27th, 2008

Hello, my name is Russ Leavitt and I would like to welcome you to my web site.

The fire protection industry is on the verge of an expansion that will dwarf all previous growth.


  • – the increasing emphasis on life safety (residential fire sprinklers)
  • – the economic realities of sound risk management (Sarbanes-Oxley)
  • – the global exporting of fire protection technology

My personal mission is to help facilitate this growth.

Sound, cost effective, life safety and risk management are worthy objectives and I am proud to be associated with an industry that does make a difference in people’s lives.

This web site is my personal forum to share my thoughts, ideas, and assistance with anyone who is looking for a challenging career, help in solving life safety problems, or simply looking for answers to questions.

I look forward to hearing your ideas and thoughts about the wonderful opportunities that await us in making our world a safer place for all.
