An Insider’s Guide to the Rigorous Testing of Fire Alarms

You’ve probably read in this blog how vital fire alarm testing is for keeping your business and everyone inside safe. And when our DynaFire trucks and friendly techs arrive for a test, our Orlando fire alarm compliance crew takes their job very seriously.

Even if your business has a fire alarm, it may still need to be fixed or in compliance with required safety standards and regulations. Having a professional Fire & Life Safety team from DynaFire inspect and test your fire alarm routinely is key to staying in compliance with AHJ (Authority Having Jurisdiction) requirements. Plus, isn’t it nice to know it’ll work when needed? We think so!

Why Is Compliance Important?

In simplest terms, compliance exists to protect people. By adhering to the rules established by governing agencies, businesses help prevent potential risks and maintain quality standards, thereby enhancing overall safety and security for individuals and communities. Code compliance is a matter of safety in our business and is at the heart of everything we do.

Testing And Compliance

Regardless of which company installed your fire alarm system, our DynaFire technicians can perform testing, repairs, and maintenance. We are not in the business of selling you a new fire alarm system because yours is not our brand. We want your building to be safe and your fire alarm system to work properly.

Testing is a crucial part of a fire alarm inspection. Our technicians check and test various aspects of your fire alarm system to ensure it functions correctly and complies with state regulations. Testing involves examining different system components, including sensors, alarms, control panels, and communication devices, to verify that they operate as intended in the event of a fire or emergency. Regular testing helps maintain the system’s reliability and ensures it is prepared to respond effectively when needed.

System Calibration: Smoke detectors and heat sensors must be calibrated for accurate fire detection. We will verify and adjust these devices to ensure their sensitivity meets safety standards.

Battery Inspection: Backup batteries provide power even when the power is out. We will test and replace batteries during your inspection and testing appointment.

Code Compliance: Our fire alarm inspections and tests focus on adherence to specific codes and regulations set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and Florida statutes. These codes evolve so our inspectors continuously stay updated on the latest requirements.

Audible Testing: Beyond verifying that your fire alarm system looks good, our inspectors perform audible testing of your alarms to ensure they emit the appropriate sound levels for evacuation alerts.

Records and Documentation: Keeping accurate records of inspections and tests is essential. During our visit, we can review your maintenance logs, test records, and compliance documentation to ensure everything is in order.

Communication Path Testing: In today’s interconnected systems, inspecting communication pathways between the fire alarm system and monitoring stations is vital. A clear communication path ensures signals reach monitoring centers promptly in an emergency. Shameless plug: If you want to upgrade your monitoring system, check out DynaNet.
