Clarification on Fire Sprinkler Spares (LS 02.01.35 EP 7)

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

There has been some confusion with The Joint Commission’s new revisions on standard LS 02.01.35 EP 7  because it seems like the same old standard in an abridged manner. So what are the changes? It’s basically the current standard with a tiny but important tweak.

Standard LS 02.01.35 EP 7 previously stated you must have at least 6 spare sprinkler heads located in your fire sprinkler box with wrenches stored within the cabinet. Additionally, the cabinet must be stored in an area that is less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The new changes to the standard starting January 1, 2021 are you must now have at least 6 sprinklers of EVERY TYPE of sprinkler head that is present within your facility. This means that many organizations will have to increase their capacity since they only possess a couple of each type of head. You will still have to adhere to the prior standard as well as ensuring that wrenches are located in each box and stored in an area that is less than 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Hopefully, this short article helps clarify the changes in the standard. While surveying, I noticed some of you have been proactive and do not have to change anything.  As a form of checks and balances, I would check them again to make sure all the sprinkler heads are present in your box since that will be a survey focus of your accreditation agency.

As always if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am always more than happy to help clarify any questions you may have!
