The purpose of the Fire and Life Safety Evaluation (FLSE) is to allow residential high-rise buildings to opt out of installing fire sprinklers. The City and County of Honolulu Ordinance 19-04 (formerly 18-14) requires that all residential high-rise buildings either install a fire sprinkler system or opt-out of sprinkler protection and pass the FLSE.

We've evaluated more than 100+ buildings. In every building we've evaluated, we have successfully determined how the building can pass without installing fire sprinklers. We will provide a summary of specific recommendations for your building to pass the evaluation and provide guidance on how to implement them.
