Benefits of Fire Alarm Monitoring

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again – having a fire alarm is one of the most important things you can do to keep your building safe from fire. But sometimes just having a fire alarm isn’t enough – what happens if a fire breaks out when no one’s there? Unless someone nearby notices and calls the fire department, you could find yourself coming back to a pile of ash and smoke in the morning! For maximum protection, you need someone keeping an eye on your fire alarm at all times – you need fire alarm monitoring!

What is fire alarm monitoring?

Fire alarm monitoring is essentially a guarantee that there will be eyes on your building at all times, day and night. When an alarm in your building goes off, the alarm monitoring system sends a signal to an offsite monitoring company that notifies the fire department immediately – often in less time than it would take you to escape and call yourself! Fire alarm monitoring can be used anywhere, from single family homes to massive building campuses. For example:

  • If a fire goes off in your home when everyone is at work or school, or in your building when everyone is home for the night, the fire alarm monitoring company will still be able to alert the fire department and save your building.
  • If a fire breaks out when everyone is sleeping and you can’t escape due to carbon monoxide or smoke, a fire alarm monitoring company will be able to send the fire department out in time to save your family.

Why do I need fire alarm monitoring?

A fire can double in size and intensity every 30 seconds. And if you don’t have someone watching your back at all times, every second it takes you to reach the phone could lead your home or building closer and closer to destruction. With a fire alarm monitoring system, making the call to the fire department is taken care of so you can focus on what’s most important – staying alive and getting yourself and your family out of the house (or your employees out of the building) as quickly and safely as possible. Most fire alarm monitoring companies can have the fire department to your home less than five minutes after the first alarm goes off – often in time to save the things you value most.

Next to a fire sprinkler system, a fire alarm monitoring system is the best thing you can do to keep your building safe.
