It's not enough to just have a fire alarm system in your building. The alarm itself can only serve to warn people of danger but monitoring service takes immediate action to provide lifesaving assistance directly to the site any time - day or night. If your building has a fire alarm system, monitoring is required by the state fire marshal. When there’s any detection of danger from fire or smoke, the sensors connected to the alarm panel send a signal to a central station where live operators are on standby, ready to dispatch emergency responders and notify key personnel.
The signal can be sent over the Internet, cellular phone, radio or standard phone line. These signals also help keep your system fully compliant by sending trouble signals to notify you when there is a faulty device on the system that needs attention. Monitoring is not required, but highly recommended, for security and access control systems. After all, most burglaries occur when you are not there, and many times thieves are not as deterred by a loud sound as they are from the blue flashing lights of law enforcement responders. Active monitoring service provides you with non-stop surveillance of your building's safety condition 24/7/365. It's like have your own security guard without the huge expense.
For a busy contractor trying to finalize a CO for a building owner, the last thing you want is a delay or a failed inspection. If there is no monitoring set up with a live signal on the day of the walk through, it could delay your CO for days or weeks waiting for paperwork, installation, activation and getting the fire marshal back for another inspection. At PFS we have personnel dedicated to tracking this important service in conjunction with building owners and property managers to insure a monitored system at the final building inspection.
