Why Fire Inspections are so important..
Fire alarm systems must be inspected, tested and maintained
regularly to comply with the codes and regulations of your
local and/or state jurisdiction. The codes and standards set forth
by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) are followed to
ensure life and property are protected in the event of a fire.
AFA’s licensed inspectors will test and inspect your system in
accordance with these codes and standards to ensure the following
components are properly functioning:
Manual pull stations
Notification appliances including horns and strobes
Smoke and heat detectors
Main alarm panel
Carbon monoxide detectors
Associated communication equipment
Why do I Need to Have a Fire Alarm Inspection?
An annual fire security inspection can make sure the alarm
system is in proper working order. The best time to see if
there is an issue with the system is when the inspection is
being completed. Also, the National Fire Protection Association
requires that a third-party fire inspector conduct a test of the
system at least once annually. Depending on your specific building
code and occupancy type, you may have to be tested multiple times per year.
