Fire alarm systems help prevent fires and save lives by performing the function of detecting, alerting and sometimes taking a part in putting out fires.
It is recommended that although the minimal fire code requirements are in place, that fire alarm systems are updated often to ensure that they are responding as fast as possible and working properly for the building they are installed in.
Fire alarm systems provide a reliable safety presence for your business. The actual system consists of a series of detectors, sirens, and other equipment to alert building occupants of a possible fire. Fire alarms feature several types of audible and visible indicators when a fire emergency occurs.
Often a single type of detector cannot be sufficient to sense and alert when smoke and fire are in the building. A small smoldering fire can go unnoticed until it gains enough fuel to become a larger faster moving threat. Swift disbursement of smoke and gases can reach occupants before a fire does and detection and alarm systems need to be combined to cover a variety of fire situations.
When selecting a fire alarm system, considerations should include the type of building, code requirements, location, access to fire services and the proper combination of fire alarm system components.
