Fire Alarm Systems

Early fire detection is Critical to the safety of the people on your property. Proper fire alarm inspection, testing and maintenance can help to save lives and reduce damage during a fire. According to the NFPA, fire alarms increase the chance of survival by as much as 50 percent!


Fire alarm systems consist of much more than smoke detectors on the walls or the fire annunciator panel in the front of your building. The whole fire alarm system is much deeper, with many elements kept out of sight. As a result, you might not be able to check every element of your fire alarm system every day. Having a working fire alarm system installed in your building saves lives. Because fire alarm systems are so important when it comes to keeping your building safe, annual fire alarm system inspections are absolutely essential. During a routine annual fire alarm system inspection, the various components of your fire alarm system are exercised and tested to make sure they’re all in good working order. This includes all manual pull stations, alert/alarm methods (strobes and horns), smoke and heat detectors, duct detectors, annunciator panels, the main alarm panel, and any communications sub-panels and battery backup supplies. Fire alarms are required to be tested annually. Smoke alarms, duct detectors, elevator recall, and pull stations are just the beginning devices that must be tested once a year. Our technicians will test and inspect all panels and initiating devices to ensure your building is protected and that occupants will be notified quickly in the event of an emergency.


During our fire alarm inspection, our trained and experienced technicians will:


  • Test the control panel functions to inspect the lamps and LEDs, check fuses, interface equipment, and check the primary power.

  • Test smoke detectors by introducing approved aerosol into smoke detector chamber or specific manufacturer recommended methods of performing the proper test and verify the proper signal was received at the alarm panel.

  • Clean all smoke detectors with nitrogen.

  • Test manual pull stations through a full range of motion and verify the proper signal was received at the alarm panel.

  • Test heat detectors with a heat gun and verify proper alarm activation at the fire alarm control panel.

  • Test and inspect all audible and visual devices to ensure that they are unobstructed, proper lights activate, and the sound level is above ambient noise levels.

  • Random check of circuit supervision to ensure fire alarm panel detects an open circuit.

  • Load test stand-by batteries and check auxiliary functions such as door release and damper release.

  • Test battery charger.

  • Verify the central station monitoring company received the appropriate signals (if a dialer is installed).

  • Test remote annunciator to verify it accurately portrays where the alarm exists in the protected premises.

  • Test duct detectors and ensure proper unit shutdown, if applicable.

  • Check any auxiliary devices that may exist and are listed on the equipment list  (door holder release, dampers, etc.).

  • Test alarm devices located in the elevator shafts (smoke and heat detectors). Note: A representative from the elevator service company is required to be present during inspections to allow access to shaft and to run the elevator car.
