Campus Fire Alarm Mesh System
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
UC Davis proposes to bring UC Davis Campus into compliance with NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) section 72, National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code by providing a campus wide radio mesh system for fire alarm and security system reporting and monitoring. This would eliminate the aged plain old telephone services and adopt a wireless mesh networking system. Phase 1 will include bringing 25 building in central campus into this system. Each building will get a transceiver and antenna, which will be installed next to the fire alarm panel on the exterior of the building. The main receiver will be installed at the Fire and Police Building. Installation will consist of drilling holes into the side of the building and attaching the equipment. This will include 1-3 years of partnering with a local vendor experienced in the installation, setup, configuration, and operation of the mesh network.
