Fire Alarm System Inspections and Testing

Fire alarm systems in commercial and multi-residential buildings are required to be tested annually according to Alberta law. These inspections are mandatory because regular testing and maintenance of your fire alarm system can ensure that it operates correctly in the event of an emergency. We employ some of the most knowledgeable technicians in the industry to complete our testing.

Sprinkler System Inspections and Testing

A Sprinkler System is your first line of defence in the event of an actual fire, so it is very important that the system is functioning correctly. The nature of fire sprinkler systems makes them prone to corrosion and blockages over time, which is why it is important to have them inspected and flushed regularly. Our inspections are some of the most thorough in the industry and could save your occupant’s lives.

Extinguisher and Fire Hose Inspections

Many fires go unreported every year because they are put out as quickly as they start with a fire extinguisher. Neglecting your fire extinguishers or failing to recharge them after they have been used can lead to a much larger fire and potentially more damage that could have easily been prevented. Fire extinguishers are required by law to be inspected annually by a certified professional and should be checked monthly by a building operator.

Which Fire Safety Equipment Testing is Required?

Are you wondering what your responsibilities are as a building owner?  Check out the City of Calgary Fire Department’s guide to maintaining your Fire Safety Equipment.  This guide outlines how often you should be inspecting, testing, and maintaining the various components of your fire safety system.


Who can test your fire safety equipment?

Because of the complexities of modern day fire alarm systems not every company is qualified to test fire alarm systems. The industry is regulated by the Government of Alberta and all technicians inspecting your building’s fire alarm system should be certified by recognized agencies including the CFAA or select post secondary institutions. If you are looking for a the best certified fire safety company in Calgary, look no further than us.

How can you make sure that you comply?

Depending on the type and components of your fire system, there are a number of required inspections that occur monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, and annually.  At Fahrenheit 451, we realize that many of our clients are still overwhelmed by the complexity of fire safety testing and we make your life simpler by offering to remind you of your inspection dates.


What if I don’t get my equipment tested?

Decreased Safety for Occupants

If any one component of the system is functioning incorrectly it could delay the detection of a fire, allowing it to spread from one area to another before the system would alarm. A failure in your Calgary fire alarm system could also lead to a tragic loss of life if the system does not alarm correctly.

Fines from Local Officials

The Fire Department takes public safety very seriously and penalizes buildings that do not comply with Alberta Fire Code. If your inspections are not up to date there could be substantial monetary penalties. This is why we encourage your building to sign up with Fahrenheit 451 and we’ll remind you to schedule all necessary inspections.

Compromised Insurance Coverage

If you do not have record of your fire systems being properly maintained, it can put your insurance coverage at risk. If a fire does occur, your insurance company may require extensive details regarding the regular testing of your fire alarm and sprinkler system. If you neglect this maintenance, you might find that your insurance company will refuse your claim.
