The Importance of Life Safety Services

If you own or manage a building, you should be taking measures to protect your building’s occupants. Installing and servicing life safety systems can help to keep people safe.

What are Life Safety Systems?

Life safety systems are composed of elements that help ensure the safety of a building’s occupants during an emergency such as a fire, earthquake, security break-in, gas leak, or power failure. Examples of life safety systems include:

  • Fire sprinklers / suppression systems
  • Fire alarm and detection systems
  • Fire extinguishers
  • Central station monitoring
  • Emergency and exit lighting
  • Mass notification
  • Intercoms

Why do Life Safety Systems Need to be Inspected?

All the life safety systems in your building will need inspections, testing and service to keep them functional and prevent deficiencies. Inspections and testing are required by many AHJs and NFPA standards. Staying on top of inspections offer many benefits including:

  • Prevent deficiencies in your systems
  • Avoid fines due to noncompliance
  • Save money on insurance premiums
  • Prevent expensive repairs down the road
  • Extend the lifespan of your equipment
  • Have peace of mind that your people are protected when an emergency occurs
