Fire alarms are the first line of defense against a fire. So, what if your fire alarm stopped working properly? What would that mean?
In the event of an emergency, the liability is unimaginable.
No emergency personnel are alerted. No one in the building may even know there’s an emergency. The device might not even communicate with your fire protection system.
How do you keep your fire alarm systems working properly?
Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance
Fire alarms need to have regular inspection, testing, and maintenance. They are the most important component of your fire protection system.
Fire alarm panels, fire alarm devices (smoke detectors, heat detectors, pull stations, duct detectors, carbon monoxide detectors) , and communication systems (monitoring stations and notification appliances) need to be inspected annually. The annual inspection includes inspecting and testing
Fire alarm control panels.
Functional testing of associated devices (NFPA 72)
Testing of notification devices
Verification that devices are reporting correctly
Testing the standby power batteries for the fire system.
Insuring that the system is communicating with monitoring stations
Servicing and cleaning
All inspection, testing, and maintenance is done according to NFPA 72 requirements for Annual Testing of Fire Alarm Systems.
Keep your people and property protected and schedule an inspection.
