The varieties of fire alarm systems (and related equipment) that Cofessco Fire Protection designs, installs, and services include:
FIRE ALARM SYSTEM MONITORING, 24 HOURS A DAY
A fire alarm system warns personnel to evacuate a building because of danger. It is not necessarily connected to a central station monitoring service, but indeed can be for greater protection of your property 24 hours a day. In the event of a fire, a "monitored" system sends out a signal to the central station monitoring service, resulting in a call to your local fire department and/or anyone you have listed with the monitoring service.
FIRE ALARM SYSTEM SERVICE: Inspection, testing and maintenance
To ensure their reliability, fire alarm systems must be inspected, tested and maintained in accordance with the requirements of NFPA 72 and your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ). Cofessco Fire Protection will perform a program of periodic testing, inspection, and maintenance that is right for you and that conforms to all NFPA code requirements as well as the requirements of your local AHJ and the system manufacturer’s suggested inspection and maintenance requirements.
Here is a list of items and procedures included in an annual fire alarm inspection in accordance with NFPA 72:
Inspection of your fire alarm system involves regular visual examination, activation and documentation of all devices (panels, detectors, pull stations, horns, strobes, annunciators, door holders, etc.) in your system.
