Fire safety system inspection and testing are essential parts of owning a fire protection system. If you never have your system tested, there is a good chance that it won’t work properly when you need it the most. It’s easy to put off having system testing or an inspection done, but regular maintenance and testing are two huge factors in whether or not your fire protection system will pass an official inspection and protect everything and everyone in your building. Why is system testing so crucial?
Lower the Odds of Property Damage
Even small fires can cause a large amount of property damage at your business. A properly working fire protection system can extinguish or limit the spread of any fire until a firetruck arrives. Always use the suggested testing schedule provided by your system manufacturer to see if everything is properly working.
As part of your system testing, you should also develop an employee training component. With many fire protection devices, like fire extinguishers, proper handling and use are essential to whether or not they work. Make sure that all of your employees know how your business’s fire protection system works and how to operate it.
The lives of the employees and customers that visit your building every day are much more important than the property inside of it. Fire protection systems are also designed to delay the spread of large fires so that people have slightly more time to escape. System testing makes sure sprinklers and other tools are functioning properly and ready to work if an accident occurs. In commercial buildings with regular fire sprinkler inspection and maintenance, the odds of someone getting trapped inside and dying are slim to none.
Pass Your Fire Inspections
Even if you don’t conduct your own fire inspections or have the professionals at Advanced Fire Protection Systems assist, you will still have regular fire inspections by your local and state agencies. Following your own maintenance schedule will ensure that you pass every time.
