Alarm Systems

Why Your Business Needs a Fire Alarm

As a business owner, you have a number of important responsibilities. Foremost among these is ensuring the safety of your employees and customers, and this means making sure they are protected in the event of a fire. Northland Fire works with both commercial and industrial clients throughout the upper Midwest, and they encourage each and every one of their customers to install a fire alarm system if they don’t already have one.

Fire alarms serve a few vital functions. First, and perhaps most importantly, they let the people in the building know when a fire has broken out through siren sounds and flashing lights that are impossible to ignore. Better still, their use of both light and sound will ensure that even if your employees or customers are hearing or sight impaired, they’ll still be able to get out of the building. Simply put, having a fire alarm means you won’t have to wait until someone notices smoke or flames, and that extra time can mean the difference between evacuating everyone safely and catastrophe.

Additionally, the fire alarm system in your building won’t just alert the occupants: It will also let your local fire department know they need to get over to your business right away. This quick alert system is vital: Not having to wait for someone to find the number and call the fire department could mean the fire is suppressed before it gets out of control.

Clearly, a fire alarm system is an extremely worthwhile investment for your business. If you don’t already have one, Northland Fire & Safety can help. If you’re looking for additional protection, they also offer fire suppression systems, emergency lighting, extinguishers, and much more to make sure your livelihood is as safe as possible.
