A lot is at risk when choosing the right fire protection company. From the compliancy of your building to the safety of your employees, fire protection is a vital component to the safety and security of any business.
Many business owners are too busy to navigate the fire protection system requirements for their building or even what is required when it comes to maintaining compliancy.
Choosing the right fire protection company to meet your individual needs will ensure that your business is protected from the dangers of fire.
Fully-trained and certified technicians
When considering a possible fire protection company, ask if their technicians are NICET certified. NICET (National Institute for Certification in Engineering Technology) certification is essential for local businesses in particular. Cobb County requires this certification for any technician working on a businesses’ property. NICET is also an important certification used nation-wide as an indicator of knowledge in the field and years of experience.
In addition to NICET certification, ask about other certifications and continuing education/access to training for employees.
At Fire Systems, our technicians are NICET certified, but that’s the bare minimum. Many of our technicians are cross-trained in sprinkler and fire alarm systems and carry other certifications/licenses such as:
- Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) for managing hazardous material and transporting CO2 cylinders
- State required licensure for handling all services (i.e. sprinkler and special hazards)
- Manufacturer specific certifications for access to programming software
Wide range of services & industries served
From heavy machinery to commercial kitchens, the need for fire protection services varies by industry. Fire protection companies specializing in only one area can be problematic for customers who need multiple fire protection services. For example, sprinkler and fire alarm.
When looking for a fire protection company, look at industries served and all fire protection services. Some companies that promise to “do it all” actually use sub-contractors. This is not a true full-service fire protection company.
Only Fire Systems technicians are trained in a range of services:
- Fire alarm
- Kitchen hoods
- Exit lighting
- Vehicle suppression
- Fire alarm monitoring
