FIRE ALARM TEST & INSPECTIONS
With Offices in Tampa and Clearwater FL, serving all of South and Central Florida
A fire alarm is a vital element to your property. In order to ensure a fire alarm can operate properly, it must be tested and maintained on a regular basis by a certified technician. Without testing, issues can go unnoticed leading to component damage which can hamper a fire alarm system’s ability to perform its life saving purpose. Ensuring your fire alarm is tested and inspected regularly can save you a lot of money by preventing expensive repairs down the road. Most notably though, The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and local fire departments require that fire alarm systems are regularly tested and inspected to ensure they are kept in working order.
How often should my fire alarm be inspected?
The NFPA creates guidelines regarding the inspection of fire alarms. Failure to comply with these guidelines can lead to heavy fines. The NFPA requires that every component of a fire alarm system from control panel and smoke detectors to LEDs to alarm signals be inspected regularly.
Weekly visual inspection – Control panels, power supplies, LEDs, fuses, and trouble signals must be inspected at least once a week.
Monthly/ semi-annual inspection – Batteries must be visually inspected once a month or semiannually. Initiating devices such as duct detectors, heat detectors, fire alarm boxes, and smoke detectors must be visually inspected semiannually. Some types of occupancies require a full system test be performed semiannually.
Annual inspection – All components of a fire alarm system must be tested and inspected to ensure they are in working order.
