Impairment Tags

When a fire protection system is out of service, someone is suppose to post impairment tags.  NFPA 25 says this is an owner's responsibility.  Do owners really have impairment tags and know how/when and where to post them?  Of course not.

Impairment tag posting on FDCs, Risers AND on Fire Alarm Control Panels.


Another example of a properly tagged system below.  If you're not tagging systems out of service, who is? If no one is, you're doing it wrong.
