"Emergency and Exit Lighting"
Emergency lighting equipment is designed to provide illumination during power outages. Emergency lights illuminate paths of egress. Illuminated exit signs identify safe exits. Cintas Fire Protection uses the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standards NFPA 101 – Life Safety Code and NFPA 70 – National Electric Code as a guide for inspecting and maintaining emergency lighting equipment.
- The equipment owner is responsible for assuring that illuminated Emergency Exit Signs and Emergency Lights (“E-Lights”) are properly maintained. Occupants can be in peril if critical routine maintenance is neglected, or is not performed by properly trained individuals with the correct tools, equipment and replacement parts.
