It’s certainly no secret that fire protection saves lives, so why wouldn’t you want to do your part and protect the people and things most valuable to you?
Here at Harding Fire Protection we often receive calls from landlords and property managers AFTER the Fire Department has shown up urgently needing a fire protection inspection.
When this happens, there is urgency to get the job done, giving you a lack of choice in your provider, and could lead to increased costs and the inability to strategically budget for years further.
According to the building code if your building falls into the criteria, you must have a fire alarm/ sprinkler system installed. The criteria for such requirements include building use, number of occupants, etc. It is extremely important to perform inspections & maintenance as per code and legal requirements.
If the fire department shows up for a random inspection or because of an alarm that sound, they will ask for your fire protection documentation. Without documentation, the fire department will do an inspection of their own. If there are deficiencies, they will issue a notice of violation, which gives you a specific time frame to clear things up or face fines. If you do not comply, you could be taken to court and could be shut down.
At Harding Fire Protection we perform inspections and repairs to keep your systems in compliance. We also work with you to create lifecycle planning and create 5 year budget planning. Our database system Apollo can help manage current investments and future planning as well.
