Why Inspect Your Fire Alarm?
No matter the type of business you own or manage, a professional fire protection company must inspect, test, and maintain its commercial fire alarm system to comply with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards.
Inspection requirements vary depending on your fire alarm equipment and the rules imposed by local authorities. However, the NFPA standards for quarterly, semiannual, and annual fire alarm inspections always apply.
Scheduling a fire alarm inspection is essential for several reasons, including:
- Compliance: NFPA, state and local agencies, equipment manufacturers, and insurance companies require businesses to routinely inspect and test their fire alarms to keep people safe and avoid penalties and fines. As a working fire alarm system is typically required to secure insurance, routine testing and inspection can help ensure any future claims are covered.
- Prevent false alarms: Flashing lights and blaring sirens without a fire can interrupt business operations and can cause panic. Worse, too many false alarms could make people ignore a real emergency.
- Safety: The most important function of a fire alarm system is keeping employees and visitors safe. It also helps protect business equipment, machinery, and documents.
