U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
Fire Alarms, Fire Pumps and Special Hazards
The USHMM is an extremely sensitive and secure museum that is home to rare pieces and installations that tell the gut-wrenching story of the Holocaust. Due to the unique environment in this facility and its abundance of daily visitors, all fire alarm and sprinkler tests were conducted and completed during ‘off-hours’ or overnight. In addition to the main facility, the annex building was also inspected and tested. Flexibility was essential in this facility and was achieved through tight communication and coordination with the site’s personnel.
