Fire Alarm Reporting System

FedCon/South Bay Joint Venture is to replace, repair, and upgrade the Fire Alarm Reporting Systems for the NAS Fallon within 143 buildings. (Note: Several buildings contain multiple fire alarm systems and therefore multiple fire alarm reporting systems.) The project includes system design, demolition of old equipment, and furnishing, installation, programming and testing of new equipment and components to ensure that each protected building on base communicates with the designated receiving station in San Diego via the existing telephone network through the use of Digital Alarm Communicator Transmitters (DACT) and Digital Alarm Communicator Receivers (DACR). The project includes providing new two DACRs at NAS Fallon. All current fire alarm panel signals at NAS Fallon are to be received at the Digital Alarm Communicator Receivers (DACR) shall be reported to the remote monitoring station in San Diego.

The scope of work for each panel/building shall consist of one or a combination of the following

tasks.

1. Remove existing Monaco transmitter: Remove all existing equipment which includes the transmitter and the radio antenna to transmit signals to fire alarm dispatch. Consists of metal enclosure approximately 20” x 12” x 4”, wiring, and antenna.

2. Remove connection to remote building FACP: Terminate and remove any existing fire alarm communication system components (e.g. fire alarm cable, conduit, telephone line, etc.) from each buildings FACP. Ensure requirements of NFPA 70 Article 760.25 are met for abandoned fire alarm cables.

3. Remove existing Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP): Remove existing FACP. All fire alarm system devices, appliances, cable, and conduit shall remain.

4. Remove existing building fire alarm system components: Remove all fire alarm system devices, appliances, cable, and conduit.

5. Provide, install and program new FACP with integral DACT: Install a new FACP.  New control panel shall be addressable, contain an integral DACT, and meet the requirements of the applicable codes and standards listed below. Program the DACT for communication with the new DACR. Provide primary, dedicated electrical power with battery backup.

6. Provide and install new fire alarm system components: Provide new system devices, appliances, cable and conduit for a code compliant fire alarm system (See Task 5 for fire alarm panel scope of work).

7. Provide, install, and program new FACP integral DACT card: Install two phone line DACT card in existing panel. Program the DACT for communication with the new DACR and the reporting equipment in San Diego Central Dispatch. Provide new battery calculations and increase battery capacity where necessary.

8. Provide, install and program standalone DACT: Install two phone line stand-alone DACT. Program the DACT for communication with the new DACRs and the reporting equipment in San Diego Central Dispatch. Provide primary, dedicated electrical power with battery backup.

9. Provide and install new phone line(s) (primary and/or secondary): To be routed from building telecom room to FACP.

10. Provide, install, and program new telephone system: Install two new phone lines from the nearest existing land line located on base. Provide new telecommunication board in building. Install two new phone lines from the nearest existing land line located on base.

11. Provide primary panel power: Install new primary power circuit from existing building electrical panel to new FACP. Install cabling in conduit. Circuit shall be dedicated in accordance with NFPA 72.

12. Provide, Install and Program two Bosch D6600 receivers: This includes associated cabling and necessary components. One receiver shall be a primary and a second one shall be a backup.
Install and program all equipment including the new Bosch D6600s with Comm 4 capability
required to communicate with the San Diego central dispatch located in building 800 within the
existing equipment racks. Communication between the D660s and San Diego dispatch will be
through the LAMAS system. Provide all equipment required to interface with the LAMAS system.
Equipment that is decommissioned or not required for the communication to the San Diego central
dispatch shall be removed returned to the government. This includes demolition of the Monaco
Head-end Equipment, all associated equipment and wiring up to the connection to the LAMS
system.rovide new telecommunication board in building.
