The main advantage of installing fire alarms is the early warning benefit. The fire alarms can be installed just about any where in a commercial building and best of all the fire safety measure is highly cost effective for smoke and fire protection.
Early warning is essential to effective fire safety because fires can occur anytime and any place. We highly recommend having fire alarms installed on every floor of your commercial business because a fire can ignite even when people are not within a room or section of the building.
You can be immediately alerted of a fire at your commercial building when your fire alarm system is connected to a remote monitoring station. This early warning signal is extremely important to life safety for the following reasons:
- Increases evacuation time for building occupants before a fire spreads out of control.
- Emergency medical help can be immediately sent out to those in need.
- Fire department personnel can help people exit the building safely.
