I was hoping someone could help me out and just summarize the process of installing a fire alarm system in SE MA. I have an upcoming project in fall river, and I dont usual work in MA, nor do I regularly do fire alarm systems. The building is a medium sized mill that is is being renovated into mixed use. First as far as designing the system, is that normal done by an EE? Is it required to be? Then do you have to submit the plans to the Fire Marshall and have them approve them? I have heard that a supplier will typically design it for you if you buy the components from them, Is this true? Finally when the system is installed, do both the electrical inspector and fire Marshall look at? Thanks, I dont have much administrative experience in MA and RI.
