Fire Alarm Testing, Inspection, Installation, & Maintenance in Los Angeles
Fire alarm systems are among the most vital and effective fire protection equipment that can be outfitted in a building. In the event of a fire, these systems detect and send either audible or visible signals to alert anyone in the area to the presence of a serious safety threat so they can take appropriate action. The State Fire Marshal Law requires that all fire alarm systems be serviced regularly.

Fire Alarm Systems Requirements
NFPA 72 (National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code) calls for all fire alarm systems to be tested at least on an annual basis, and local fire codes may require more frequent testing. Both new and existing fire alarm systems are subject to NFPA regulations. To ensure compliance with California’s strict fire alarm regulations, all our systems are listed and approved by UL and the California State Fire Marshal.
Our testing, repairing, and installation of fire alarm systems complies with the following codes and regulations:
- Title 19 State Fire Marshal Regulations
- The California Administrative Code Title 24 State Building Standards
- Los Angeles City Fire Department Regulation 4
NFPA requires that all premises meet its fire alarm requirements and, if applicable, be monitored by a central station facility.
What Happens in Fire Alarm Tests?
Periodic system testing is vital for preventing untimely component breakdowns and ensuring that alarm problems do not compromise the safety of the building. Testing fire alarms at work or the home should be performed by a trained professional. Our fire system inspection experts will examine various parts, components, and conditions, including the following:
- Electrical connections
- Lamp and LED illumination
- Cleanliness of devices
- Device orientation
- Main alarm panel
- Site conditions that could interfere with fire system functionality
- Modifications to system since last inspection
- Heat and smoke detectors
- Low-pressure alarms
- Flow switches
- Tamper switches
- Control valves and switches
If any of your fire system components are defective or otherwise out of compliance, our technicians can perform the repairs necessary to keep everything operating correctly and safely.
