Fire Alarm Inspections - Huntsville AL

Fires cannot be predicted and can be incredibly devastating. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, workplace fires and explosions accounted for 116 deaths in 2012. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration show that workplace fires and explosions accounted for more than 5,000 injuries and roughly $2 billion in losses for businesses in 2012. These figures just go to show the true importance of fire safety plans and working fire alarms in the workplace.

Your company needs to have a fire safety plan in place that consists of procedures to be followed in the event of an emergency, such as a fire. In addition, all employees should be trained on safety procedures so that they are prepared when disasters strikes.

However, there is more to fire safety than just having a plan in place and having your employees trained on procedures. Did you know that fire alarm systems are required to undergo a full inspection every year to ensure they are in proper working condition? Most businesses overlook this inspection, but it is one of the most important inspections for your business.

Because of commercial and industrial fire alarm systems being so widely available, many fire departments are now requiring that a permit be obtained that certifies the adequacy of the fire alarm system installed.

Avoid becoming another statistic. Ensure you have a fire safety plan in place and your employees are ready to act, if necessary. If you don’t have a fire alarm system installed in your business, you need one. Call us today at BBC Systems, Inc. to schedule your fire alarm system installation or inspection.
