Fire Alarm System
One of the most important fire protection systems you can install in your building is a fire alarm. A fire alarm system is one of the best ways to alert your employees and coworkers of a fire, so they can quickly get to safety. It is important to keep your fire alarm system up to code to ensure it works properly always. As a result, quarterly fire alarm system inspections are critically important. If you are due for a fire alarm system inspection, call “SASSECO” Shawamekh for Safety Systems and Equipments today!
Why are Professional Fire Alarm System Inspections Important?
We Keep You Up to Code
To ensure their reliability, fire alarm systems must be inspected, tested and maintained. “SASSECO” will set up a service program for periodic testing, inspection and maintenance that conforms to:
NFPA code requirements
Local authorities having jurisdiction (Civil Defense)
System manufacturer's recommended inspection and
Required Annual Fire Alarm System Testing
Fire alarm systems consist of much more than smoke detectors on the walls or ceilings or a fire enunciator panel in the front of your building. Many elements of fire alarm systems are kept out of sight, so you might not be able to check them every day. During a routine quarterly fire alarm system inspection, the various components of your fire alarm system are exercised and tested to make sure they’re all in good working order. That would include all of the manual pull stations, alert/alarm methods (strobes and horns), smoke and heat detectors, exit/emergency signs and lights, duct detectors, enunciator panels, the main alarm panel and any communications sub-panels and battery backup supplies.
Fire Alarm Replacement
If a fire alarm inspection turns up any alarms that are no longer working properly, it’s extremely important you have them replaced right away. Faulty fire alarms or alarms that go off in the wrong places are some of the most common causes of death in buildings with fire alarms. Your SASSECO fire alarm inspection technician will be able to provide fire alarm replacement for all of your nonworking fire alarms. Don’t get caught unprotected – if you need fire alarm, call SASSECO today!
What Else Does a Fire Alarm Inspection Include?
Every fire exit will be checked to make sure the doors are easy to open and there are no objects blocking the exits. In addition, the fire alarm system inspection technician will check to make sure every emergency exit door is conspicuously marked, so people will have no trouble finding it.
Our fire alarm inspection technician will check to make sure there are enough emergency exits in your building and it does not exceed its maximum occupancy. Making sure the number of emergency exits is sufficient for the amount of people in your building is critical as an emergency situation is likely to trigger a stampede otherwise.
The fire alarm inspection technician will check to make sure there are no highly flammable substances near your building. If flammable materials are essential to your building’s function, the fire alarm system inspection technician will make sure they are stored away from high risk areas.
A fire alarm inspection technician will check to see if your fire extinguishers and fire alarm pull stations and devices are located in the proper places, so people can get to them right away in the event of a fire.
In addition to fire extinguishers and fire alarms, a fire alarm inspector will check to see if your fire sprinkler heads are located in the proper areas and are spaced out properly.
Having a working fire alarm system installed in your building saves lives. According to the NFPA, properly maintained fire alarms increase the chance of survival by as much as 50%!
