How Often Do You Need An Orlando Fire Alarm Inspection?

When you go to a local fire protection service provider like DynaFire, you can rest easy knowing that your property is kept in compliance with fire code by a team of professionals you can rely on.

What Are The Different Types Of Fire Alarm Inspections?

We’ll go over the various types of fire alarm inspections and how they are conducted. Take some notes, we heard this might be an answer on Jeopardy! and you’ll want to impress your retiree friends. 

All fire alarm inspection types are also outlined in the NFPA 72.

Weekly and monthly inspections

These two inspection types don’t need to be conducted by fire professionals. This means that someone around the office can be volun-told to handle them. During these inspections, you typically will be checking on anything that may not be actively monitored by your alarm system. This may include things like lamps, LED lights, batteries, CO2 detectors, and more. It’s a good idea to have building occupants familiarize themselves with the alarm system, since the more they know about it, the easier it is for them to recognize potential problems that may need to be addressed.

Quarterly inspections

These inspections are one that the team at DynaFire can handle for our clients. Quarterly fire alarm inspections are usually visual inspections that ensure your equipment is in good working condition. During quarterly inspections, our technicians will look for any signs of physical damage and document their findings for your records. 

Semi-annual inspections

Semi-annual fire alarm inspections typically examine tamper switches, flow switches, and the condition of backup batteries. This Orlando fire alarm inspection also includes the examination of each component of the system as well as visual inspection of notification devices and sensors. 

Annual inspectionsOrlando Fire Alarm Inspection

An annual fire alarm inspection is the most in-depth inspection we’re discussing today, and this, like the semi-annual inspection, needs to be conducted by a certified fire alarm inspection professional. During an annual inspection, the following system components are checked and tested:

  • Detectors, pull stations, and flow switches
  • Horns and strobes
  • Voice evacuation equipment
  • Control panel
  • Central Monitoring Station signals 
  • And more

NFPA code requires that these tests are conducted and recorded, and any deficiencies found and corrections made be recorded as well. Now, don’t panic about those deficiencies and corrections – we know you already want to work with DynaFire, and if our eagle-eyed inspectors find any issues, we’ll address them quickly and have your system in pristine condition once again.
