II. Narrative Section 
16. Project Description: This project aggressively retrofits the museum's sprinkler system and associated equipment.
17. Project Justification: The Nevada State Railroad Museum is protected by dry and wet sprinkler systems. In accordance with the National Fire Protection Association, we seek to protect employees, volunteers and the public from the effects of fire, including smoke, heat, and toxic gases created during a fire. In addition, we desire the system to protect irreplaceable artifacts. The museum has an installed alarm system. The installed fire suppression system is failing in multiple areas. In the past year, we have replaced sections of piping in the Jacobsen Interpretive center, the Nelson House, and the Restoration shop. The leak in the Nelson house diluted the anti-freeze and flooded one area rendering the structure un-usable. The leak could have been catastrophic if freezing weather combined with weak anti-freeze. Four air compressors in the pressurized systems are at the end of their serviceable life. Sensors need to be replaced.
18. Project Background Information: In the past year, we have replaced sections of piping in the Jacobsen Interpretive center, the Nelson House, and the Restoration shop. The leak in the Nelson house diluted the anti-freeze and flooded one area rendering the structure un-usable. The leak could have been catastrophic if freezing weather combined with weak anti-freeze. Four air compressors in the pressurized systems are at the end of their serviceable life. Sensors need to be replaced. The Nevada State Railroad Museum site includes the Jacobsen Interpretive Center, the Annex building (and extension), Restoration Shop, the Wabaska Depot, the Nelson House, a comfort station, a water tower, and the adjoining park.
19. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
19a. Type of equipment to be replaced: Air compressors, lines, and sensors
19b. Year existing equipment was installed: varies
19c. Manufacturer of existing equipment: Notifier alarm system. Mixed sprinklers.
19d. Model of existing equipment:
19e. Are there any known hazardous materials? No
Environmental Considerations
20a. Hazardous Materials (Asbestos, Lead Paint, etc.):
20b. Will the site require any hazardous material abatement? No
21. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): Continued deferred maintenance will increase the risk of catastrophic failure causing significant damage and costs for repair. Further, upon complete failure, the Museum will no longer be able to meet its mission and the public will no longer be able to access this significant part of Nevada’s history.   
Health, Life Safety, and/or Legal Issues
22. Please describe any health, life safety, and/or legal issues that will be resolved by completing this project (Short Essay): Fire alarms and sprinklers systems. This entire project is a health and life safety request.   
23. Proposed Project Schedule Impacts/Issues
23a. Will this project require relocating personnel or vacating the building for any period of time? Unknown
23b. Explain:
23c. Has any design work been completed on the proposed project? No
23d. What is the latest date this project could be completed without disrupting your program? 2022
23e. What is the driving proposed completion date? piping is failing and compressors are past serviceable life
