A functional commercial fire alarm system provides early warning that a fire is brewing up. The sooner the alarm detects a fire, the longer you have to evacuate personnel and customers from the premises. State regulations require that your fire detection systems be properly maintained so that if a fire breaks out, the damage to property and the risk to people are kept to a minimum.

Proper installation of your commercial fire alarm system is not an option, it is the law

The Texas Insurance Code Chapters 6001, 6002, and 6003 govern the proper installation and maintenance of fire protection systems in the state. The code requires that firms installing and maintaining systems secure the proper licensing and certification to service fire detection systems. This helps ensure that only qualified, properly trained personnel handle the critical tasks of inspection and repair. In turn, this ensures that if a fire breaks out, the commercial fire alarm system will perform its lifesaving and property protection functions the way it is designed.

Proper inspection, maintenance and testing is critical to ensuring proper operation of your commercial fire alarm system

There are many critical components of a commercial fire alarm system. These include sensors, control panels, and much more. Each of these components must be properly inspected and maintained. Failure of any of these critical components in a fire could lead to extensive property damage and creates the potential for loss of life. It typically costs between $2 to $7 per square foot to install a commercial fire alarm system; it costs a fraction of this to maintain it on an annual basis. The costs to a business of installing and maintaining a reliable commercial fire alarm system are considerably less than the amount that can be lost if a fire destroys a structure or causes a wrongful death.

Loss due to a fire can be only the beginning of your problems

If a fire detection system isn’t maintained in accordance with state regulations and NFPA standards the results can be devastating. Sensors may not detect a fire, electrical faults can prevent the relaying of information to the local fire authorities who in turn may not be able to stop a small fire before it becomes a raging inferno. When the smoke clears and the debris cools, business owners who improperly maintained their commercial fire alarm system can face denial of insurance claims, civil lawsuits, and criminal penalties for their negligence. As they say, an ounce of prevention is must less expensive than the pound of cure.
