John Jay Homestead
The John Jay Homestead was home to John Jay, who was the President of the Continental Congress, the first Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Governor of New York.
It is 1 of 6 state historical sites and 12 parks administered by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
RAN Fire Protection Engineering was retained to design a fire suppression system and a fire detection and alarm system. The fire suppression system that was used in this facility is a water mist fire suppression system. Water mist systems produce fine droplets to suppress the fire. Because this system uses significantly less water, this results in less water damage to the building which will drastically help to preserve the historical elements of the building.
