Properties can fall out of code compliance if their system is found lacking.
Testing occurs with the main building fire alarm system because fans activate upon the fire alarm signal being sent to the panel. If the fans have manual controls those will be tested. Pressure readings are required every 5th floor, and depending on the matrix (if there is one), dampers and doors on every floor may be affected. Annual certifications depend on AHJ requirements – some properties are too small to be tested.
Testing time varies based on the size of the building and availability of atmospheric pressure.

We've used AAA Fire Protection for longer than the 27 years I've worked here. We don't have to remember - they show up when it's time to service our fire extinguishers, replace them as needed, and make other suggestions as needed. We've been very happy with them!Lenna Southland
I've used AAA at most of the multifamily communities I've worked at in Seattle and have been quite happy to work with their teams. The techs are always a delight to have on site, their support team members have been very helpful over the phone, and the office personnel are professional and courteous. They keep us on track with our inspections and help us to make sure our staff and residents are safe. Thanks for being great to work with!Melissa Moore
