5 Reasons Why You Need To Have Your Commercial Fire Alarm System Inspected Annually
#1 – Protection of Life
A fire alarm system must be maintained and monitored in order to do its job and protect the lives of your employees, tenants and guests. Many fire alarm impairments cannot not be discovered without a full test of your fire alarm system. Neglecting your fire alarm equipment puts lives at risk. You do not want that potential liability.
#2 – Protection of Property
Imagine the loss of revenue your business would have to endure if you had to shut down for six months? Detecting a fire before it’s too late not only saves lives but it helps minimize the damage to your property. Alarm Systems help keep your business open and making money.
#3 - It’s The Law
By law you must have your fire alarm system tested at LEAST once per year. This includes a full range of tests completed on the fire panel, as well as tests for all smoke detectors, duct detectors, horns, strobes, chimes etc. The inspection is completed so there is minimal disruption. AFPG will also work with the local Fire Department to ensure that they know your annual inspection has been completed as required.
#4 - It’s Affordable
Annual fire alarm inspections are more affordable than people think. The cost depends on the size of your property and the amount of fire protection equipment that needs to be inspected. To get the most accurate estimate, give us a call and one of our experienced Life Safety specialists will give you an estimate right on the phone or make arrangements to visit your property.
#5 - Insurance Requirements
In the event of a fire at your property, your insurance company is going to ask if are you current on your annual fire inspections. If you cannot provide proof of your annual inspections and test, your insurance company may reject your claim. AFPG keeps all your files on record, making it easy for you to get access to any inspection records you need.
