A commercial fire alarm system is crucial to saving lives and property when tragedy strikes. This is a very basic concept and very true. A commercial fire alarm system is the only reliable way to ensure you and your employees are alerted immediately when a fire or smoke is detected. While the main benefit of a system is of course the early warning advantage, they also offer a cost effective way to protect your property from fire and smoke damage. To ensure reliable operation and protection, every business owner should have a basic understanding of the fundamental elements and operation of their commercial fire alarm system.

The basic function of your commercial fire alarm system

The commercial fire alarm system installed in your building should be connected to a remote monitoring station to ensure you get the help you need right away. Your system will provide alerts to make you aware of the danger right away and are able to evacuate your premises quickly before the fire spreads. A continuously monitored system will ensure first responders are notified not only of the fire threat but also the location of the threat which in turn helps them reach your business quickly and hopefully reduce your loss. Commercial fire alarm systems really are life-savers.

The basic operation of your commercial fire alarm system

The basics for you to learn include knowing how to disarm the control panel, troubleshoot the horns and pull stations so your system goes back online as quickly as possible. Problems with these areas can occur, and you need to understand how to restore them, so fire protection is back in place right away.

Control panel basics

The control panel is the heart of your commercial fire alarm system. The control panel provides power to your entire system and the circuits for the initiating devices which enable you to make sure your system is functioning properly and able to keep you protected.

While you probably don’t understand your system design or how to install a system, understanding the basic and fundamental functions and operation of your system  is needed to keep your system functioning properly. It is absolutely necessary that you learn the basics of your system before tragedy strikes and make sure you and your business stay protected.
