What is Sprinkler Monitoring?April 24th, 2019 | by Vancouver Fire | in | 0
Sprinkler Monitoring is an essential service for all buildings with fire sprinkler systems. Sprinkler monitoring systems will give an immediate alert in the event that a sprinkler system has become activated. This is especially important as it allows for immediate action, possibly mitigating further damage to your building and assets. In many cases, these systems are tied in with the fire monitoring system, but are available to be monitored separately should the sprinkler leak or malfunction.
All commercial and high traffic and occupancy buildings are required to have some sort of fire suppression system. Without sprinkler and fire monitoring, you would be unaware in the event of this system being triggered unless you are present in the building itself. Thankfully, if these systems are professionally monitored, you will know about it instantly. This can be especially important in the case of an accidental leak.
Sprinkler monitoring stations work similar to security monitoring in that live agents are monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They can then immediately respond to a fire, leak, or other emergency in which the system detects. The monitoring agent can then immediately contact 911. If the emergency happened in the middle of the night, without monitoring you may not know until the next day, when it is too late to mitigate damage.
By investing in sprinkler monitoring today, you may save time, money and headache down the road should the unthinkable happens. Protect yourself and your building by contacting Vanfire today for a free sprinkler monitoring assessment.
