Installation, Prevention, & Maintenance
From installation to maintenance, an operational fire alarm system designed to protect your entire facility is a critical line of defense against fire. The fire alarm system act as the eyes and ears for your building when you’re not there, or in more obscure areas.
Hire a fire protection company that knows not only how to properly install an alarm system but also what type of system would be best for your building’s needs. It may seem simple, but a fire protection professional is really the only one who can tell you how many smoke detectors, notification devices, initiating devices, etc. you need.
After proper installation comes maintenance. NFPA sets requirements on the frequency of inspections required to maintain a compliant alarm system. For example, the batteries and charger to the fire alarm control panel need to be tested semiannually. The batteries must be replaced if the capacity is less than 80 percent of its rated capacity. These are maintenance tasks that only a professional should handle.
The chances of a faulty fire alarm during a thunderstorm is less likely if you properly maintain your alarm system.
