Fire Alarm Systems

Fire alarm systems are life safety systems and therefore, should be treated as such.  Selecting the right company to design, install, and service your fire alarm system is critical to protecting your employees and property.  Fire alarm system design and installation are driven strictly by code.  Each jurisdiction has different requirements. Most follow NFPA 72 and local building codes, but it is essential to work with a company that has a track record working with authorities to ensure that your system meets code.  Many times fire alarm systems may require the approval of multiple jurisdictions (local, state, & joint commission) before installation. Having a company that knows and understands the requirements of all is a critical piece of getting a new system installed.  At FSS Technologies, our designers and installers are NICET certified, and we understand the nuances of installing fire alarms in most jurisdictions.    

Servicing the fire alarm system after the installation will be necessary.  Many of the national fire alarm systems installation companies will have an electrical contractor or subcontractor install the system, and then send one person to program and test the system once installed. But what happens when the system needs servicing?  The national companies have one service technician for multiple states, and most aren't certified fire alarm technicians.  On average, with a nationwide company, you will wait two weeks for service on your fire alarm system.  At FSS Technologies we guarantee service within 24 hours.  Our technicians are NICET certified fire alarm technicians, so you know that you are getting expert assistance.     

Fire Alarm Inspections

Inspection and testing of fire alarm systems are required annually by NFPA 72.  As a commercial business or building owner, you are required to have the fire alarm systems test yearly by a certified firm. In other words, you cannot test it yourself unless you are a NICET certified or a state licensed fire alarm technician.  At FSS Technologies, our NICET and state licensed fire alarm technicians will test and visually inspect your system as required by NFPA 72.  Also, FSS will provide you with a full inspection report, which will advise you of any deficiencies in your system. Call us today to get a quote to have your system tested.
