Found out today that city of pittsburgh with all its budget cuts eliminated its fire prevention inspectors most who were ready to retire and turned fire inspection over to building inspection bureau who has no one at present certified under ICC to due inspections for fire alarms,hoods sprinklers etc. and we now have to use 3rd party service. and there are very few 3rd party service available. what a mess. I can not bielive they did this knowing how much revenue they brought in with inspections let alone give up the control on how systems are installed. hopefully it will all be ironed out in a couple of months but till then who knows.
