Sanirajak school sprinkler system fixed after nearly a year – Nunatsiaq News

Apr 19, 2023

Cost of 24-hour fire watch totalled $204,000

After nearly a year of being under a 24-hour fire watch, Sanirajak’s school now has a functioning sprinkler system.

Arnaqjuaq School’s sprinklers were repaired March 30 when a new fire pump was installed and the system is working again, Department of Education spokesperson Krista Amey said Tuesday.

The school had been without a functioning sprinkler system since May of last year. In its place, a 24-hour fire watch was implemented where a team of 21 people hired on a full-time, part-time and relief work basis took shifts monitoring the school.

Part of the sprinkler was fixed in November, but when a different part had to be ordered it pushed back repairs of the system by months.
