I am looking for information on how addressable fire alarm systems have to be dispatched from the central alarm stations. If you have an addressable system does the central monitoring station have to dispatch it as point specific or are they allowed to dispatch a “general” fire alarm? NFPA 72 Section 23.14 deals with Off-Premises Signals. Would this be the correct section or is there another area in NFPA that deals with this issue?
