Repair, Service & Inspection

Proper fire alarm testing, inspection and maintenance can help save lives and property.

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) mandates that all fire alarm systems in protected premises be tested regularly. Local fire codes and insurance companies may require more frequent testing.

VFP’s team of trained technicians can regularly test, inspect, service and repair your fire alarm system to assure optimum system performance.

Inspection Procedures:

  • Check the fire alarm panel to ensure alarm initiating devices are functioning properly at the time of inspection
  • Verify alarm indicating devise is functioning properly at the time of inspection
  • Verify supervisory signal initiating devices is functioning properly at the time of inspection
  • Verify system power supplies, including battery backups, are sufficient at the time of inspection
  • Load testing of batteries
  • Clean detectors with compressed air
  • Test functionality of detectors with test smoke
  • Check every known pull station for accessibility
  • Verify points being monitored are correct at the time of inspection (if the facility has a remote annunciator)
  • Verify signal reached the monitoring company’s office (if the system is monitored)

Sensitivity Testing

New fire codes mandate that every other year your smoke detection device must have a sensitivity test in addition to the functional test. VFP can perform this test with our state-of-the-art Underwriters Laboratories (UL) listed equipment.

Monitoring

VFP can monitor your fire alarm system with our UL listed monitoring company. This service can provide you with peace of mind knowing your facility is protected 24-hours a day.
