Ambulance bay Sprinkler

Ambulance bay Sprinkler

Does Ambulance bay require sprinkler installation? if so where would be in the NFPA?

RE: Ambulance bay Sprinkler

the emergency room is fully sprinklered except the Ambulance Bay. it was designed back in 1996.

As in canopy?? Open on three sides made out of non combustible
Drop off area??

Or they are parked there 24 hours a day, except on runs??

RE: Ambulance bay Sprinkler

My same answer applies. What does the building code say about this area. If the building code requires, then you will need to protect in accordance with NFPA 13.

This sounds like you are describing maybe something similar to a porte cochere at a hotel. A covered spot where a vehicle is parked for drop-off and pick up. NFPA 13, 2016 edition states that a porte cochere should be protected per Ord Haz Grp I.

If it is a non-combustible canopy, the thought may have been the canopy is not used for the storage or handling of combustibles and that was used to exempt it from coverage.
