The Importance of Life Safety Systems Inspections

Now is a great time to review your property’s life safety system’s inspections!

Property management comes with great responsibility. One of those responsibilities is fire safety, and remaining educated about the fire protection systems in your facility. Some of the most common mistakes arise when your systems are not tested and inspected according to NFPA standards and/or your local AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction).

When properly maintained and inspected, fire protection systems are among the most reliable means to ensure the safety of your building and everyone in it. Trusting that your systems will optimally perform in the event of an emergency depends upon the quality of the service and inspections performed on them. When you work with Protegis Fire & Safety, you get the full-scale capability of one of the most established and experienced fire protection companies in the United States.

Is Your Fire Alarm System Tested Regularly?

NFPA’s National Fire Prevention Week is next week and it shows the importance of fire escape planning and knowing what to do during a fire. Even though it is very important to have a plan without a regularly tested and inspected fire alarm system you may still be in danger.

The worst time to find out that your fire alarm system is not able to perform its designated function is during an emergency. Regular testing and inspection of your fire alarm system will guard against such an occurrence. Our technicians use the most current procedures and equipment on every inspection we conduct, thoroughly testing and inspecting every component in your system for correct operation. In addition to identifying unseen deficiencies, regularly-scheduled inspections can reduce false alarms by ensuring your smoke detectors are optimized to the correct sensitivity level. Our technicians are supplied with mobile devices for access to previous inspection reports and pertinent, site-specific data. Your benefit as a Protegis Fire & Safety customer is in receiving a clear, concise, professional inspection report for your records.

When it comes to protecting your property and the people in your facility from fire, early warning and fast response alarms can make the difference in preventing a catastrophe. A properly installed, maintained and inspected fire alarm system is essential to instantly alert occupants of a building and summon emergency personnel when necessary.
