Fire Monitoring Vancouver
Your fire protection system is more effective if it is monitored. If your fire alarm is tripped, how quickly does the fire department know about it? If your sprinkler system is leaking, how quickly do you know about it?
Vancouver Fire is the only fire protection company in Canada to own and operate a local central monitoring station. We do not rely on third-party remote monitoring stations. Certified by Underwriter's Laboratories of Canada, our central monitoring station complies with the most demanding industry standards.
Our station operators are ready 24/7 to respond to a fire or sprinkler alarm. We immediately notify the local fire department of the threat of a fire. Without a monitoring service, your only hope is if someone calls 9-1-1.
We protect what matters most to you by delivering unmatched service, each and every day. You would never cut corners and compromise life safety. Neither would we.
Combining Fire Inspections with Fire Monitoring
Most of our customers see the benefits in using one company for their fire protection and monitoring needs. Watch this short video to see what happens when you don't.
Fire Alarm Monitoring
The B.C. Building Code (section 188.8.131.52) and local municipal bylaws require fire alarm monitoring in buildings that:
- Are designated as assembly with an occupant load over 300
- Have an automatic sprinkler system, or
- Have a two-stage fire alarm system
The City of North Vancouver’s Bylaw 8090 requires multi-unit residential buildings to have compliant fire alarm systems installed, including fire monitoring by a ULC-certified monitoring station.
More information about Bylaw 8090.
If there is a fire in your building, a quick response from the fire department is essential. Every second of delay means more property damage and safety risk.
On our fire protection systems, all fire alarm devices are connected to a central fire alarm panel. Once a device is tripped, the fire alarm panel instantly signals our ULC-certified central monitoring station and our operators immediately notify the fire department.
With our central monitoring station, we guard your property 24/7, even when no one is there.

Sprinklers save lives and protect property from the ravages of fire. That’s why they are required in commercial and mid-rise residential buildings, and increasingly, fire departments are recommending them for all buildings.
But, what if your sprinkler system leaks or malfunctions? If you do not stop the flow, the water damage can be extremely costly. Let us monitor your sprinkler system. Then you can be confident our central monitoring station is guarding your property 24 hours a day. Even when your building is empty, we’ll be watching.
