With the constant flow of news coverage of loss due to fire, to most, fire sprinkler and alarm system inspections are a clear matter of importance. Some, however, view these inspections as a necessary evil, or worse, a waste of time and resources. Fire sprinkler and alarm inspections can ensure that your system is functioning properly, which ultimately will help save lives in the unfortunate event of a fire. But beyond saving lives, there are many other benefits of regular system inspections.
Building codes and policies are created and in place to ensure the protection of occupants and residents. Fire alarm inspections confirm that your fire warning device meets the standards set by these codes and policies. Many of these same codes and policies are also used by insurance companies for protection against false claims. If your fire system fails to fulfill the standards set by insurance companies, your claims could be denied.
Fire alarm inspections provide proof of a properly functioning system should the need for proof arise. Should injury to occupants due to a fire ever occur, the liability you face will be restricted if you can prove your fire system was functioning properly. If you can’t show proof from a fire alarm inspection that your system was functioning properly, you may be held responsible for injuries sustained.
Faulty systems may also cause false alarms, unnecessarily calling the fire department to your building. Fire alarm inspections can also prevent the occurrence of these false alarms.
