This edition of NFPA 20, Standard for the Installation of Stationary Pumps for Fire Protection, was prepared by the Technical Committee on Fire Pumps and acted on by the National Fire Protection Association, Inc., at its May Meeting held May 17-20, 1999, in Baltimore, MD. It was issued by the Standards Council on July 22, 1999, with an effective date of August 13, 1999, and supersedes all previous editions.

Stationary pumps are essential for fire safety. I just had some installed in my business, and couldn't imagine working without them. It is a good thing that people like you make these types of services public because I think a lot of loss due to fire could result without these types of pumps
