What is Fire Alarm Inspection

Helpful Q & A on Fire Alarm Inspection

01. Is Inspection is a Legal Requirement?

Many Local Authorities and Fire Marshal’s need routine inspection of fire alarm systems and their components. It’s the building owner or manager’s responsibility to make sure that these inspections are done at the specified time intervals and appropriately documented.

02. What is the purpose of the fire alarm inspection?

Although some components should be inspected weekly or monthly, many require inspections on a quarterly, semiannual, or annual basis. Zenith develops a schedule based on your fire alarm and local code requirements. We work closely with you to make sure your system and its components are inspected at the right intervals.

03. What is Fire Alarm and Safety

A comprehensive fire alarm system consisting of a control panel, initiation devices, and notification appliances provides early warning to building occupants in advance of active fire protection systems, like Fire Sprinkler Systems. The safe and orderly egress of building occupants before the arrival of emergency personnel increases their ability to react to the actual emergency more quickly.

04. What is the inspection process of Reliable Fire & Safety

The main goal of a fire alarm inspection is to provide visual confirmation that a system or component is working properly, in the proper location, free from physical damage, or any condition that could impair operation. A good proactive fire alarm inspection plan is essential to catching problems early on, in between, or during testing cycles.

In-Suite Testing

Local Fire Safety Company You Can Trust

In some cases, fire alarm detection, audible and visual devices are located inside residential dwelling units, such as strata units. These devices are connected to the main building’s fire alarm system and must be tested annually. Therefore, access to residential dwellings is crucial to ensure complete system testing and code compliance.

Stand-alone, battery-operated in-suite smoke alarms are not connected to the fire alarm panel, but are usually tested at the same time.

Reliable Fire & Safety in Vancouver creates a schedule and uses a testing format that meets or exceeds national and local code requirements. The goal is to ensure systems are operating within the ranges optimal for peak performance.

Our customized forms and test reports detail all of the system’s functions, devices, and also identifies any deficiencies. We take time to discuss these test report’s results with our customers so that we can answer their questions and address any areas of concern.
