The time to winterize fire protection systems is now” at Chain Store Age magazine.

In addition, he explores how to limit potential losses with working fire sprinklers, dry sprinkler system maintenance, fire pump, backflow preventer, anti-freeze and extinguisher protection and winterization of fire safety systems, as well as how routine maintenance helps avoid problems.
