If you own or manage a business, school, hospital, apartment building, hotel or any commercial building, it is important to be up to date with your fire alarm testing and inspection service. You should be confident that your fire alarm system would protect your business and employees in the event of an emergency.
If you are not sure how often your system should be inspected, you should have a licensed fire alarm company set up an inspection schedule that works for you. By having your system professionally inspected and tested, you are preventing future emergency repairs, which can be costly. Regular inspections from a licensed fire alarm company will also keep you in compliance with national, state, and local fire alarm code, preventing possible fines and/or violations.
Reasons You Need Your Fire Alarm System Tested and Inspected:
Setting up regular fire alarm testing and inspections gives your building the ability to:
- Save Lives: A properly operating fire alarm system is vital as it can save the lives of your employees, customers, and guests in the event of an unexpected fire.
- Abide by Local Laws: Almost all local AHJ’s (Authorities having Jurisdiction) have testing and inspection requirements. Failure to follow these requirements could result in violations and/or costly fines. Code compliant fire alarm testing and inspections can help you avoid these penalties.
- Avoid Legal Expenses: If your fire alarm system malfunctions and a fire is undetected, you may be forced to defend yourself against costly lawsuits due to injuries and/or loss suffered. Setting up an inspection schedule could prove you were compliant with code and kept your system in working order.
- Prevent Future Issues: Maintaining your system prevents problems you didn’t even know you had. Regular inspection and testing can detect issues, allowing you to have a fulling functioning fire alarm system.
