The Importance of Having Reliable Fire Alarm Services for Your School

Published on August 5, 2020, by AFA Author

Fire Protection in School

For Education facilities, a properly designed and serviced fire detection system is essential for keeping your students and staff safe. Having a reliable fire alarm and life safety system provider along with up-to-date fire safety measures in place can provide confidence in the protection of your building, students and employees. It is also important to keep staff and students educated on fire safety practices. Your staff and students should know where fire extinguishers and evacuation routes are located and be knowledgable on all life safety protocols in the event of an emergency.

Services for Your School Fire Alarm System

Inspection: Your schools system needs to be inspected regularly to comply with your local/state fire safety codes and regulations. National and local fire code states that your system needs to be inspected periodically to ensure its functionality. These codes are written and enforced for the safety of people and property in the event of a fire.

Maintenance: Make sure your school or facility has reliable fire alarm maintenance service to ensure your fire alarm system is always working properly. AFA's technicians are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to resolve any issues with your system.

Monitoring: When a fire alarm system recognizes a signal, the signal is sent to a central station monitoring facility. Live operators on duty 24 hours a day receive and react to these signals to notify the authorities and your facility’s emergency contacts. This will ensure that emergency response personnel are alerted, and alarms are responded to properly even during non-business hours.
