NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
CDCR will install an automatic fire alarm system in P-Wing, floors P-2 and P-3, which were recently converted to Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) in response to the Coleman vs. Schwarzenegger lawsuit. An automatic fire alarm system is required by Department of Health Services with approval by the Office of the State Fire Marshal (SFM) to maintain licensure as an ICF. CDCR obtained a one year Conditional Occupancy by the Deputy State Fire Marshal under an interim Life Safety Measures plan, until an automatic fire alarm system can be installed in each housing unit. Installation of a design-build turnkey fire alarm system includes: conduit and wire installation; electrical connections and breakers; fire smoke dampers with manual override; HVAC shutdown; full area smoke detection with vandal guards; manual alarms at supervisor station; notification in common areas and hallways (excludes individual cells); annunciation at control center; preliminary testing; operating and maintenance manuals; hazardous testing and abatement; and on State Fire Marshal test. CDCR must ensure compliance with Coleman court mandates. If CMF loses its ICF license, CDCR will be required to establish ICF services at another institution.
