Death, Tax and Fire Protection Equipment Certification (our expertise)

Many of you are familiar with expression “only certainties are death and taxes” but if you are a property management team or a property owner, you probably know of the third certainty and that is testing, repairs and certification of fire protection equipment. All local Fire Departments in the entire southern California following many other states have adopted and have become part of a new system called “BRYCER”. Brycer’s data system has enabled fire departments to create, keep track of and send notices of “Renewal” and “Notice of Non Compliance” to all individuals and companies listed as legal owners and/or operators of buildings. Owners and managements are now receiving notices to conduct tests of fire protection equipment, followed by notices to complete repairs found on these systems.

This data system is expanding every day, including property addresses never before followed up by authorities. Every day more and more buildings receive such notices with set deadlines to comply. In the past two years more owners and managements have been summoned to city Attorney’s office for non-compliant charges filed against them than in the past 25 years.

How to stay Compliant

  • Conduct tests of all fire protection systems found in your property. Below are fire protection systems categories and their testing intervals and requirements list from fire department website (https://www.lafd.org/fire-prevention/chiefs-regulation-4)
  • Complete repairs of defects found on test report.
  • Call us for retest and certification.By Following these simple steps you can:
  • Avoid non-compliance fees, sanctions and even legal actions against your property by authorities
  • Keep your occupants safe
  • Keep your insurance company satisfied
    • Test reports are considered legal document in any court of law and can protect you as a proof of due diligence against claims by insurance companies and individuals presented by them.
