Fire alarms require regular fire alarm inspection procedures in order to keep them working at optimum levels. The last thing you want is the fire alarm system failing when a real fire breaks out. This can be very costly and could even cause loss of lives. Fire alarm inspection allows home and property owners to avoid this dire outcome by ensuring that the fire alarms are working in perfect shape. At ASCO Fire, we understand the importance of fire alarm inspection and we are your best bet when it comes to keeping your fire alarm system working in tip top shape.
What Is A Fire Alarm Inspection?
Fire alarm inspection involves ensuring that all of the elements that make up a fire alarm system are working properly. Faults in the fire alarm system can happen either at installation (if the fire alarm system is not properly installed) or could occur over the life of the system due to electrical malfunctions or other factors.
Fire alarm inspections ensure that the fire alarm system is working properly. Typically, these inspections are carried out by certified professionals who check whether all components of your fire alarm system are working. These elements range from smoke/heat detectors through the siren mechanisms. If there are other elements to the fire alarm system such as automatic responses (sealing air ducts for example), these would be inspected as well.
Types of Facilities that Require Fire Alarm Inspection
Any building that has a fire alarm system must periodically have the systems inspected. This is especially true for facilities that had their fire alarm systems set up a while ago as the likelihood of something going wrong increases with time. Some of the facilities that require fire alarm inspection include:
- Medical Facilities
- Multifamily Residential Buildings
- Manufacturing Facilities
- Assisted Living Facilities
- Retail Facilities
- Commercial Buildings
- … and more!
Benefits of Fire Alarm Inspections
Fire alarm inspections are critical in keeping the fire alarm system working in perfect condition. Like any other system, fire alarm systems can go wrong and the last thing any home or property owner wants is to find out that his or her system is broken when a fire breaks out. Regular inspections by certified professionals can give you peace of mind that your system is working properly and that any fire would be quickly detected by the system.
Regular fire alarm inspections also help when negotiating fire insurance premiums as they prove that the property owner has undertaken every effort possible to ensure that their property is protected from fire damage.
