Businesses rely on fire alarms to protect themselves and their employees from any fire and smoke. However, when gone untested and uninspected, severe dangers are likely to occur. Having your fire alarm system tested on a regular basis will ensure that your business and employees are safe from any potential fire hazard.
If your fire alarm system does not operate properly and there is a severe fire hazard, the likelihood of people getting injured increases substantially. If not maintained, your fire alarm will not be able to work properly. And the only way to determine whether or not it is working, you need a professional to come and inspect it.
Most insurance carriers likely will not pay for any damages as a result of a unmaintained fire alarm. Insurance companies require proof of fire alarm maintenance and without it, they are likely to find you at fault for failure to maintain and inspect your fire alarm.
It’s very likely that your insurance companies will give you a discount if you can show proof of proper care and maintenance of your fire alarm.
It’s The Law
There are a variety of legal requirements about fire alarm maintenance and most commercial buildings have codes that need to be followed. It’s always important to check with your local fire and building departments for the proper maintenance requirements of fire alarms.
Eliminate Any Legal Fees
If a business’ fire alarm stops working or is simply not properly maintained and people are injured as a result, this could cost a business a huge sum of money in damages. Liability would rest on your shoulders for failure to maintain a proper fire alarm system, leaving your business drained financially, potentially losing the business as a result.
Stop Any Nuisance Alarms
By properly inspecting and maintaining your fire alarm system, you are reducing a significant portion of Fire Department time and money. By eliminating any random fire alarms going off due to poor or improper maintenance, you allow community resources such as Fire Departments to attend to actual emergencies, instead of false alarms.
