What do they want to shut off?
The gas can be shut off by a manual/auto device, activated on discharge.
Electric appliances, frierlaters,grills etc need to be shunted.
The hood exhaust must remain on. (MA code)
In short, not your problem to hurry, (I used to be the suppresion guy, My office would make you scramble.) Get your inspection then follow up.
Basicaly, a shunt trip breaker has a 120V coil on it.15 or 20A, Just an auxilary switch in the suppresion control cab. Switch the hot thru the N/O contacts at the suppresion system, to control the coil of the shunt breaker.
Normaly this would be the main breaker for the kitchen appliance panel.
Nice extra!!!!!$$$$$(unless someone missed it)
Watch the compartment(in the sup panel) for it, they let it slide, but.. not a true junction box.
