Why Is a Fire Alarm Important?
Fires can start and spread extremely quickly, endangering anyone in the building and causing plenty of property damage. While fire sprinklers and suppression systems may help to slow the spread of the fire, getting everyone to safety in an organized manner is a critical first step for any fire response.
A fire alarm notifies building occupants as soon as a fire is detected, giving them as much time as possible to evacuate safely. It can also notify local authorities or your security company of a problem, quickening the response time in an emergency.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fire Alarm Systems Design
Why are fire alarms necessary for businesses?
Rapid detection is essential for protecting lives and property. Correctly positioned and maintained fire alarm systems notify employees, customers, and first responders of an emergency in progress. A reliable fire alarm gives you the time you need to evacuate the structure and for first responders to arrive to extinguish the fire before it can spread throughout the building.
Is code compliance sufficient to keep my business safe?
Making sure the fire alarm system complies with NFPA, NEC, local building codes, and other standards will go a long way towards ensuring your fire alarm system design will deliver the reliable protection you desire. However, you must couple your fire alarm system with an equally reliable and code-compliant fire detection system and fire suppression system for maximum protection.
How does IoT fit into fire alarm system design?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing everything, including the way fire alarm systems are designed. Greater connectivity and enhanced monitoring tools make it possible to reduce the installation costs, operating costs, and service costs of fire alarm systems. It also enhances the reliability and responsiveness of the alarm system.
Are NFPA standards keeping up with technological advances?
Not even close. The NFPA codes are updated every three to five years. When it comes to fire alarms, new, improved systems are being developed at a much faster rate. This means that many of the newer fire alarm systems we can incorporate in your overall design exceed the established standards.
