Fire Alarm Systems

Notification for Life Safety Assurance


In the event of a fire, seconds count. That’s why having a properly functioning fire alarm system is critical. One of the key elements of the fire alarm system is the ability for notification and evacuation of occupants. In addition, adequate exit routes and occupant familiarity with an escape plan are essential.

A fire alarm system provides an audible and visible alarm signal as the result of the actuation of a fire alarm pull station, automatic operation of a fire detector (such as a smoke or heat detector) or the automatic operation of a protective system (such as a sprinkler system). Another important element of the fire alarm system is its ability to provide continuous 24-hour monitoring, which can notify the local fire department in case of an emergency.


Fire Alarm Systems Inspection, Testing and Maintenance:

Inspecting, testing and maintaining fire alarm and detection systems is essential for ensuring the systems’ operational readiness. These activities are necessary to maintain system integrity and ensure the system operates as designed and installed. Regular inspections can identify missing, damaged or obstructed devices, incorrect or damaged wiring, system additions or modifications and trouble conditions that may exist at the fire alarm control panel. These deficiencies must be resolved for the system to adequately protect facilities, assets and occupants, while maintaining code compliance per NFPA 72.

Some of the key elements of a comprehensive inspection program for fire alarm and detection systems include visual inspections and system testing. Following the thorough inspection we provide a detailed, bound inspection report identifying any deficiencies, while also recommending any corrective measures with an estimated cost.

Visual inspections ensure no changes to the system or related equipment affect system performance. Our inspectors visually inspect and test:
