A fire alarm system isn’t only crucial to maintaining the safety of your employees and building, it’s also legally required. You don’t want to skimp when it comes to a fire alarm system. Looking to cut corners will leave you more susceptible to fire, and it will leave you more openly liable when someone finds the corner you cut (which they almost always do). Investment in a proper fire alarm system is a must. You’ll want to focus on a few key elements to ensure you’re getting the best coverage:

  1. If you try to cut corners on a fire alarm system and its implementation, it will come back to bite you. Improperly designed or implemented fire alarm systems aren’t just more likely to miss a fire and risk liability, they’ll also trigger more false alarms. In the end, this may cost you far more than you thought you saved at the outset.


  1. A modern fire alarm system isn’t just an alarm, it’s also a fire detection system. They’re designed with intelligence elements. Early fire detection systems can more accurately detect smoke and fire. This makes them more resistant to triggering a false alarm based on dirt, grit, steam, or malfunction. An intelligent system such as this can also notify you when particular smoke detectors need maintenance. A smart fire detection system like this cuts down on maintenance time, and it can cut down on time spent trying to find a failed detector.


  1. This same intelligence factor can also tell fire departments how far a fire’s spread before they’ve stepped in the building. This can help fire departments combat a fire more swiftly and safely, thus preserving life and property more efficiently. By being able to convey information about where a fire started and how it spread, it can also aid you in your insurance claims.
