Fire alarm inspections also help prevent smoke inhalation, which represents a much more significant risk than a fire itself, making it a major cause for concern by home, building and business owners. Statics show that more people lose their lives to smoke inhalation than the fire itself. Thick smoke in a confined area can quickly render a person unconscious, which makes them unable to reach the fire exit.
The goal of fire alarm systems is to work as an early detection and warning system in the event of a fire. It gives people a fighting chance by allowing them enough time to reach a fire exit. It also sounds the alarm for first responders so that they can arrive in time to contain the fire. Containing the fire in time can help prevent loss of life, property, and reputation. All of which makes it essential to get professional fire alarm testing and inspections.
