The State of New Jersey requires that, prior to all performances in public assemblies, an audible announcement be made notifying occupants of the location of exits to be used in the event of a fire or other emergency condition. This announcement is to be made no more than ten minutes prior to the start of an event. How do you intend to comply with this requirement?
Any and all curtains, drapes, or possibly combustible props must meet specific flame propagation ratings. These items should be treated or inherently flame resistant, in accordance with NFPA 701. Our inspector will require a proof of flame certification at the time of your inspection.
Inspections will be scheduled at a time that will allow for a minimal impact upon the theatrical performance/rehearsals.
Because of the danger that is posed by large groups of people in dark, unfamiliar areas, such as during theatrical performances, an inspection will be conducted to ensure compliance with fire safety codes.
