Ensuring your business is run with safety at the forefront is critical. Protecting your assets, staff, and more from accidents like fires takes planning, care, and attention. Most importantly, it requires an effective, tested, and well maintained fire alarm system. The faster you and your staff can respond to a fire, the faster help can arrive, and personnel can evacuate to safety. If you haven’t been keeping up with your fire alarm maintenance, now is the time to start.
Save Money and Lives
Fires result in expensive damage. Not only can it cause legal fees, but a lost product, work time, and assets can lead to significant loss before you consider the risk of lost lives. Additionally, inspecting fire alarms regularly can help you take advantages to discounts on insurance premiums. Testing also ensures that the system will work allowing for better safety.
Meet Insurance Requirements and Regulations
From insurance company requirements to federal, state, and local laws –having a working fire alarm system is a must. Depending on your location you may need to adhere to different guidelines. It’s also important to note that some insurance companies will refuse payout if a fire occurs and there is no proof of a working alarm system. Following the regulations can also help protect your business from legal repercussions if a fire occurs.
Prevent Annoying False Alarms
Last but not least, a well-maintained fire system helps to minimize the chances of a false alarm. Along with being noisy, false alarms can result in lost time and fines from the local fire department if there are too many instances of a mistaken signal.
