Even though there isn’t a Florida building code that requires the use of a fire alarm in a single-family residence, there are few families who would entertain the thought of not having this life-saving piece of equipment in their home. Whether you have a system that is tied into the electrical system or has a 10-year nonreplaceable, nonremovable battery, it won’t be of much help if you aren’t around to hear it go off. It might surprise you how often a fire begins when a home is unoccupied because the family is away on vacation or it is during the day and everyone is at work, school, or running errands. The audible alarm may alert your neighbors or the fire could reach a point where someone calls the fire department, but by then, your home could be too engulfed in flames to be saved.
The solution is fire alarm monitoring services. When your alarm system detects an active fire, notification reaches the monitoring company quickly, and they respond by first calling you. If you are not at home to tell them if it is a false alarm, they will report the fire alarm occurrence to the fire department, so they can respond quickly and hopefully save your home.
Fire alarm monitoring services are an important tool for keeping your family and pets safe, as well. This is especially true for larger homes where a fire could begin without you noticing right away. Rather than there being a delay in seeking help or risking becoming trapped by the flames, the fire department will arrive promptly and get you to safety.
