Fire Alarm Systems Serve an Important Purpose
Automatic fire alarm systems detect fire by noting environmental changes that are linked to combustion.
Automatic fire alarm systems are designed to:
Alert occupants to evacuate when a fire/emergency occurs
Report off-site to operators that notify emergency responders
Prepare the facility and related systems to control fire spread
A combination of detector types may be needed in large facilities to detect smoke and fire in their earliest stages. Personnel could be alerted to a fire threat by a fire alarm pull station, a smoke or heat detector, and/or a sprinkler system.
These systems can be classified as automatically actuated, manually actuated, or both. Their purpose is to save lives by sensing even minor flames, smoke, or gas and instantly creating visual and audible alerts for the building’s occupants to evacuate before it’s too late.
Factors to Consider for Commercial/Industrial Fire Alarm Systems
The type of commercial or industrial fire alarm system you choose should be based on a variety of factors like facility size, specific hazards, local code requirements, and proximity to emergency services. There are also special considerations for the system components such as:
Sprinkler system monitoring
Water flow monitoring
Duct detector monitoring
Fire alarm control panels
Kitchen hood monitoring
We can assist you in selecting the best alarm system, components, and maintenance plan for your commercial facility and its inherent fire hazards.

Benefits of Fire Alarm System Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance
Regular inspection, testing, and maintenance of fire alarm systems is vital to supporting a system’s peak operation. Damaged or obstructed components can cause a system to fail during the moment it’s needed most.
Some of the many benefits that result from regular system upkeep include:
Decrease in false alarms
Insurance rate discounts
Risk reduction/liability protection
System integrity and operational guarantee
Building owners hold the important responsibility of meeting and documenting code requirements like annual (or more frequent) system inspections and testing. Untested or inadequately maintained fire alarms and extinguishers can lead to horrible consequences including loss of life or property.
