Fire alarms are the backbone of your fire protection system by alerting necessary personnel. Alarm systems should be inspected at least annually. Annual inspections are required under the National Fire Code of Canada (CAN/ULC-S536) and the local authority having jurisdiction.

Adhering to regulations, our technicians are all CFAA or provincial equivalent certified, provide detailed ULC reports and offer 24-hour emergency support.

Capabilities of fire alarms and detection systems:

A well-maintained fire alarm system is critical to helping your employees, tenants or guests evacuate quickly and safely.

Effective fire alarm systems including the following:

  1. Sound and Notification: The main function of a fire alarm is to notify building occupants of an emergency. Fire alarm systems can include bells, horns and strobe lights.
  2. System Preparation: Several events occur after an alarm is triggered to prepare a fire suppression system to activate, suppress and control fire. This is why you need to service and test your system regularly.
  3. Offsite Reporting: Alarm systems are typically linked to a central monitoring station. This station contacts emergency personnel.
