Alarm systems detect signs, such as smoke and carbon dioxide, a fire may be present, and they’re required in most commercial buildings. Even the best fire alarm system is worthless if it’s malfunctioning, and you won’t know if that’s the case unless you get it regularly tested and inspected.
If you’re due for an inspection, here’s why you should schedule it now:
Keep People Safe: Your main priority, when it comes to fire safety, is probably all the people involved in your commercial enterprise. Whether it’s employees, partners, guests, or clients conducting business on your property, you’ll want to ensure their safety by replacing or repairing a worn-out fire system.
Avoid Major Property Loss: You’ve invested a lot of time and energy into your business, and it’d be a shame for it to go up in smoke. Keep your system maintained and up to code, and you’ll be able to respond to emergencies fast enough to prevent catastrophic property loss. It takes a long time to recover after fires, as well, but you’ll spare yourself the worst of the experience with a functioning alarm system.
Meet Federal & State Requirements: Fire alarm systems are so critical that many federal and state regulations exist for ensuring they work properly. This is especially important for workplaces, with the Occupational Health and Safety Administration specifically stating that employers must properly maintain their fire systems.
