Fire Alarm Installation
Why is Fire Alarm Monitoring Important
While having a fire alarm system in place will help ensure those on location are alerted to any problems, in most buildings the greatest risk of loss occurs when the facility is unoccupied. Detecting a fire early can mean the difference between losing everything and keeping damage to a minimum. If a fire occurs and there is no one on the scene to respond to the problem, losses can be catastrophic. When the fire department is not notified there is a problem, the fire can spread and do irretrievable damage if the home or commercial place has no sprinkler system in place.
Even on locations with a fire sprinkler system installation, if no one is notified to turn off the water once the fire has been extinguished, water damage can occur. This is where UL listed alarm monitoring provides an extra measure of security to protect your assets. When your onsite alarm system detects a problem, it sends a signal to the monitoring center so that the fire department can be dispatched and you can be notified within minutes of a fire.
In addition to vital fire and water flow notifications, having your fire alarm system monitored provides other valuable services such as tamper switch notifications and alerts when your devices have a problem and may need to be replaced or repaired. Monitoring provides invaluable coverage of your alarm systems' health and provides the ability to respond to emergencies. Assurance uses a UL-listed Fire Marshal approved monitoring center that meets or exceeds all NFPA standards. Multiple redundancies ensure that any signal your system sends will be received and promptly acted upon. At your location, Assurance Fire Sprinklers provides multiple technology options to best serve your needs, from land line to TCP/IP to cellular monitoring solutions. Assurance can monitor most existing brands and types of panels, and are experts at installing new dialers or panels should those be required.
Fire Alarm Inspections
Our annual testing of fire alarm panel and associated devices includes smoke detectors, pull stations, heat detectors, and horn/strobe units.
Repair, Service and Inspection
Fire alarm testing, inspection and regular maintenance can help save lives and property. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) mandates that all fire alarm systems in protected premises be tested regularly. Local fire codes and insurance companies may require even more frequent testing. Our teams of trained technicians regularly test, inspect, service and repair your fire alarm system to ensure optimum system performance at home and commercial place.
During inspections we:
Check the fire alarm panel to ensure alarm initiating devices are functioning properly at the time of inspection
Verify alarm indicating devise is functioning properly at the time of inspection
Verify supervisory signal initiating devices is functioning properly at the time of inspection
Verify system power supplies, including battery backups, are sufficient at the time of inspection
Load testing of batteries
Clean detectors with compressed air
Test functionality of detectors with test smoke
Check every known pull station for accessibility
Verify points being monitored are correct at the time of inspection (if the facility has a remote annunciator)
Verify signal reached the monitoring company’s office (if the system is monitored)
New fire codes mandate that every other year your smoke detection device must have a sensitivity test in addition to the functional test. Assurance can perform this test with our state-of-the- art Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed equipment.
