Why your business needs regular fire alarm inspections
Did you know you are required to have your commercial building inspected at least annually? Fire alarm inspections are a requirement to keep your building code compliant. Your local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) can and will visit your business/building at any time to ensure your fire alarm system has been inspected and is working properly in accordance with Local, State and/or National Fire Alarm Code. If your building cannot provide proof of having code compliant documentation of a current fire alarm inspection OR if your fire alarm system is not in working order, your building can be found to be in violation of the local fire alarm code. Violations issued by your AHJ could mean expensive fines and in some cases, a revocation of your Certificate of Occupancy.
