Central Station Fire Alarm Systems

Unfortunately, some clients request that the central station verify all fire alarm signals from a protected premises, usually by placing a call to the security desk or some other responsible person. NFPA 72 specifically disallows this practice by requiring immediate retransmission of signals.

Often, this occurs because the equipment at the protected premises is not maintained, is antiquated or the installation puts equipment like smoke detectors in places not suitable. All of these situations can lead to false and unwanted alarms, and the fire department constantly responding becomes a problem. Thus, the alarm company is not allowed to call and verify the alarm signal prior to notifying the fire department.

If the system is the cause of the false and unwanted signals, fix the system!
