Common Fire System Repair Services
We can handle virtually any fire alarm system repair you need. Some of our most common repair services include:
- Fire Alarm Control Panel Repairs
A fire alarm control panel (FACP) – also known as a fire alarm control unit (FACU) – controls the activities of the appliances that detect fires, alert people to danger, and identify problems with your fire protection system. Fire alarm control panel repairs are among our most common services in the Pacific Northwest.
- Fire Alarm Circuit Board Repairs
We can troubleshoot and repair fire alarm circuit boards – a common cause of fire alarm system malfunctions. If your circuit board can’t be repaired or if parts are unavailable, we can install a new one.
- Pull Station Repairs and Replacements
A functioning fire alarm pull station is a critical first defense, allowing prompt evacuation and rapid attention from first responders. They’re also a vital fail-safe redundancy. We can repair or replace fire alarm pull stations in Seattle or Portland.
- Reprogramming Fire Alarm Panels
Although your alarm panels were programmed when they were installed, your panel needs to be reprogrammed if your building layout has changed.

Frequently Asked Questions
Should a faulty fire alarm control panel be repaired or replaced?
The short answer is it depends. Many control panel components can be repaired or replaced. But if your FACP parts are obsolete, or if your local building codes or fire codes require upgrades to modern equipment, replacing the FACP may be required.
Do fire alarm system repairs require a permit?
Many repairs do not require a permit if the repair includes “like for like” replacement or if there are no changes to major system components. Simple repairs, such as replacing defective pull stations, notification appliances, or smoke detectors, can be done without a permit in some localities. We are happy to be your compliance partner to ensure fire system repairs comply with local building codes and fire codes.
What should we do if our fire alarm is beeping constantly?
Call us right away – you may have a malfunctioning alarm system. We can quickly diagnose and determine if repairs or replacements are necessary. Contact us online today.
Why does our fire alarm system issue frequent false alarms?
Repeat false alarms may indicate a sensor in your fire alarm system is not performing. We may be able to replace the sensor or make other necessary repairs. To schedule fire alarm system repair, contact us online.
We can’t hear our voice evacuation system … what’s wrong with it?
The most common cause of inaudible voice evacuation systems is the improper placement of audible and visual notification devices. Electrical problems or dead batteries could also be preventing your detection and notification systems from working properly. Contact us immediately!
