There are many advantages when fire alarm and sprinkler techs are on-site at the same time, especially for troubleshooting.
All Fire Systems technicians have access to the managers and technicians from other divisions. For example, if a sprinkler tech runs into a fire alarm issue, they can call the fire alarm division manager. The issue is resolved quickly and efficiently.
When multiple techs from different divisions work together, they come together to solve issues with integrated systems.
For example, several sprinkler devices like water flow switches and tampers are tied into the fire alarm panel. It’s beneficial to have a fire alarm technician on-site to make sure those come through to the panel without flaw. If there is a problem, the fire alarm tech can test it right there, potentially fixing a very small problem. The sprinkler tech would have to write up a return trip otherwise, costing more.
