Fire spreads exceedingly quick, doubling in size in just seconds. Within thirty seconds of a fire starting, it spreads and fills the air with a thick smoke that makes it not only hard to breathe, but blinding to see through and navigate your way to safety. Especially when confined to a room, fire heat ranges from 100 degrees to 1200 degrees or more. These exceedingly high temperatures can burn human skin leaving permanent damage, and can scorch the lungs if accidentally inhaled.
A fire alarm system has a control panel that is capable of detecting the presence of smoke or particles of fire combustion that may indicate the beginnings of an actual fire. Generally, lights on the system will blink and an alarm will sound to notify people of the possible presence of a fire. The triggering of the alarm system notifies the fire department who arrive on scene immediately.
To ensure that an alarm system works to the best of its ability, it is crucial to have them tested on a regular basis. Depending on the system, this could be required annually, or even more frequently.
With a fire alarm system – to include fire panels, the alarm system keypad, and all equipment components – residents and employees of both homes and businesses are protected from the dangers of a fire from the very start. Through professionally installed fire alarm systems, fires departments are alerted immediately after an alarm detects heat and smoke of a deadly fire. Ultimately, fire damage can be reduced or even prevented, and lives will be saved.
