Fire Suppression System Installed In the Archive Room Progress is being made in the Chehalis Tribal Archive. Suppression Systems, Inc. installed a Novec fre suppression system in the space, bringing it up to code for the safe storage of collections restored to the Tribe. Suppression Systems, Inc. conducted a training at the end of October and demonstrated how the fre suppression system would work if activated. A traditional water fre suppression system (such as a sprinkler system) could cause just as much damage to collections as a fre, but the Novec system suppresses fre by releasing a non-toxic liquid that cools the fre down. The liquid then evaporates, having suppressed the fre and leaving the Archive collections unharmed. Should the fre suppression system be activated, a strobe light will fash outside the Archive. It is important not to open the door for at least ten minutes after activation so that the system has time to suppress the fre and evaporate. This fre suppression system meets federal and state requirements for the storage of collections, making the Archive a secure place to keep culturally important artifacts that the Tribe has committed to care for.
