How to Fill Out A Template:
Step 1: Select and download the appropriate template based on the table above. You will require a .doc editing program such as Microsoft Word to fill in the document. The mobile version of Word does work but not as well as the desktop version for this purpose.
Step 2: Open template document in editor of choice. Editing the template is limited to filling in the blank form fields (grey boxes) and check boxes. Begin with the business name and address as labeled on the cover page.
Step 3: Fill out all of the form fields as best as possible. Keep information as short as possible as there is limited space. If you require additional space to input information there are several “Additional Information” pages through out which can be used and referred to in the original form field. If there is a particular section that does not apply to the building (eg: there are no sprinklers in your building) especially under Part 11: Maintenance Requirements of Building Fire & Life Safety Systems, then fill in the form fields for that section with “N/A” for Not Applicable.
Step 4: If you already have a Site Plan and/or Floor Plan available they can be submitted along with an applicable legend as separate documents. Otherwise please print our the plan pages under Part 12, draw out the plans as best as possible, and submit them with the filled out template.
