Fire System Inspection
Preparing for a Fire Inspection
Inspections for your Fire Systems happen so that the level of safety in your building can be evaluated and their ability to extinguish a fire in case of an emergency. A fire inspection also happens to make sure all safety standards and fire codes are being met and upheld. Without having a fire system inspection, buildings could become unsafe for the public to enter, work in or reside in.
