Fire Alarms

As a life safety system, the primary function of a Fire Detection and Alarm system is for notification and evacuation of personnel.

Fire alarm systems are among the most vital components of your building’s fire protection strategy. Having a working, well-maintained fire alarm system is crucial for keeping your building safe from fires and for keeping it up to code.

As with most things in your building, your fire alarm system’s future performance is largely dependent on how well it’s initially installed and how frequently it is inspected and tested.
