Benefits of Fire Alarm Monitoring
If you’ve ever read our blog, you know that next to a fire sprinkler system, a working fire alarm system is the most important equipment you can have to keep your building safe from fires. But even the best fire alarm systems are limited by one fact: you’re probably not in your building 24/7, and if a fire breaks out and the building is unoccupied, no one will be there to hear it! Fortunately, there’s a solution:
Installing a Fire Alarm Monitoring System
To maximize your fire protection, you need eyes on your fire alarm system at all times – you need a fire alarm monitoring system! Guardian Fire Protection is one of the DC Metropolitan area’s leading fire alarm monitoring companies, and we have 30 years of experience waiting to keep you safe at all times. If your building is empty at night or at different times throughout the day and you want to make sure it’s safe from fire around the clock, make sure you consider fire alarm monitoring service.
What is fire alarm monitoring?
With a fire alarm monitoring system from Guardian Fire Protection, you’re basically guaranteed a team keeping tabs on your fire alarm system at all times, day and night. Fire alarm monitoring is not a surveillance system – instead, when an alarm in your building goes off, it sends a signal to our offsite monitoring system, and then we notify the fire department immediately – often in less time than it would take you to get out of the building and call yourself! Even if you are in your building when the fire breaks out, our system will call the fire department for you so you can focus on what’s more important: getting everyone out as fast as possible.
Why do I need fire alarm monitoring?
A fire can double in size and intensity every 30 seconds. And if you don’t have someone watching your back at all times, every second it takes you to reach the phone could lead your building closer and closer to destruction. With a fire alarm monitoring system, making the call to the fire department is taken care of so you can focus on what’s most important – staying alive and getting everyone out of the building as quickly and safely as possible. Most fire alarm monitoring companies can have the fire department on their way less than five minutes after the first alarm goes off – often in time to save the building.
Next to a fire sprinkler system, a fire alarm monitoring system is the best thing you can do to keep your building safe. If you want more information about fire alarm monitoring, or how to sign up with a fire alarm monitoring company, call Guardian Fire Protection today!
