A fire alarm system has the capability to save your life, your property, your family, colleagues and assets. However, this is only the case if the fire alarm installation and maintenance has been completed correctly. It’s important to know how your fire alarm should be installed and maintained. This way you will know that you can rely on it in case of an emergency.
In this blog post we look at the proper fire alarm installation and maintenance so you can ensure that your fire alarm has been properly installed and maintained.
Fire Alarm Installation
The fire alarms installed in your property must be from a trusted fire protection company. They must also be installed by experienced fire alarm technicians. These are both things we can offer here at Jensen Security and Fire Systems. The fire alarm installation process is crucial to the effectiveness of your fire alarms. If they are properly installed, then they will be able to protect you and those within the property. If they are not correctly installed, this may not be the case.
We would recommend that the fire alarms within your property are interconnected. This means that is one device detects a fire then all the alarms within the property will sound. Those within the property will then be aware of the emergency and be better prepared to make a safe exit from the property.
Fire Alarm Maintenance
Once your fire alarms have been correctly installed, they will be able to operate independently. However, this is only the case if they are properly maintained. Your fire alarms should be tested weekly and inspected periodically too. It’s important that your fire alarms are maintained annually by a professional fire alarm engineer too.
When you are updating or moving the items in your property, that you remain aware of the location of the fire alarms. They must not be covered by décor, furniture, plants or paint. This will ensure that they stay in good working order. In turn, this will mean that they can be relied upon in case of a fire or emergency.
