Automatic fire alarm systems are designed to detect the presence of fire by monitoring for environmental abnormalities associated with combustion. Most commonly, a fire alarm system is classified as either automatically triggered, manually triggered, or both.
Automatic fire alarm systems are intended to alert the building occupants to evacuate, report the event to an off-premises location in order to summon emergency services, and prepare the structure and associated systems to control the spread of fire and smoke. This will ensure building occupants avoid injury and minimize damage to valuables inside.
It is required that all businesses comply with state, city and county fire and life safety codes. In addition to minimum requirements, we suggest that fire alarm systems are tested and updated quarterly to ensure that they are responding quickly and working properly. The components in fire alarm systems are designed to work together so each piece must be tested to ensure the entire system functions effectively.
Selecting a Fire Alarm System
In many buildings multiple types and styles of fire detectors are necessary to adequately protect the structure. A small flame can go unnoticed until it gains enough fuel to become a larger faster moving fire. Swift disbursement of smoke and gases can reach occupants before a fire does and detection and alarm systems need to work together to cover a variety of fire situations.
When selecting a fire alarm system, considerations should be made for the type of building, code requirements, location, and ease of access to fire extinguishing services.
