Welcome Readers! Annual fire alarm inspections are so important for your business. Annual inspections are not only important but they are required. When you have a commercial building you are required to get your system tested once a year. This is to ensure proper function and to make sure there is no physical damage to the fire alarm parts. This inspections has many benefits for your building and the people within it. Advanced Fire Protection Systems helps explain these benefits to us.

Save Lives & Property

Being prepared for a fire in advance can help to save a lot of lives if one occurs. Regular fire inspections don’t only ensure that your equipment is in working order, but inspectors will also point out any possible fire hazards as well. Without inspections, businesses are likely to ignore or forget to check their building for fire hazards or their equipment.

Fulfill Requirements

Many states require that your building get a fire inspection at least once a year. This helps to ensure your safety but also keeps your business running. If you do not get regular fire inspections, you could be shut down. If you’ve waited years to have a fire inspection done and you have way too many violations, you could also be shut down.

Gather Data

Performing regular fire inspections allows the fire inspectors to collect useful data that can help them in the future. They can figure out patterns regarding faulty equipment or common areas where fire hazards exist. It also helps them to decide where the best places are to install new fire equipment. Driving to your building can also allow them to see which fire hydrants and water sources are closest to your building in case of emergencies.

Public Relations

As mentioned before, you want your customers to feel comfortable when they enter your place of business. Getting regular fire inspections lets your customers and employees know that you care about their safety and well being. It also give you a chance to interact with the local fire department and get to know them a little better.
