Your fire alarm system serves as the detector, annunciator, and communicator for your building when a fire breaks out, which is why it is critical to keep it in proper working condition. Fire codes require that fire alarm systems need to be tested at regularly scheduled intervals.
Fire Alarm systems vary widely in their complexity, capability, and design. That’s why it’s important to partner with a fire protection service provider like AAA, who are organized to deliver inspection and testing by the same technicians each year. In addition, we also are licensed to provide maintenance and improvement services.
Our trained technicians help you stay in compliance, ensuring that your equipment functions as designed and maintains communication with the central station monitor.
