Damage Costs of a Fire is All the More Reason to Obtain a Fire Alarm System


Whether your business is in an office, healthcare facility, warehouse, or restaurant, you may need a fire alarm system. At Millennium Fire and Security, Inc., we strive to provide quality fire alarm system technology for our customers. We understand that a fire can be costly to your business and put people in danger. The simple action of installing a fire safety system can save money and even lives.


Fires can happen anywhere. According to the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA), the average number of annual fires for office properties is 3,340. For other establishments, it’s even higher. Industrial manufacturing properties see 37,000 fires a year, while retail stores experience 13,570. Restaurants deal with 7,640 fires a year and healthcare facilities grapple with 6,240. Given this data, it is smart to equip your business with a fire alarm system.


One of our clients chose NOT to install a fire alarm system in his restaurant, saying “I don’t need it; it’s not required.” A few months later, due to carelessness, his building burnt to the ground.  His business was closed for 10 months while waiting to rebuild.  Now he understands the value of fire systems in his business.  Don’t be a victim of a catastrophe before you realize the value of your safety.


With a fire safety system, you can avoid costly fires that will set your business back. The unexpected event of a fire can be detrimental to your company. It could halt growth, cost you thousands, and cause tragic injuries. Installing a fire alarm system is the responsible thing to do. The NFPA found that the average property damage cost of a fire for office properties is $33,532. Retail stores’ average cost is $44,509 while warehouse cost is the highest with $128,099 worth of property damage. An easy and affordable fire alarm system costs way less than the losses of commercial fires.



Don’t let your business contribute to the numbers. At Millennium Fire and Security, Inc., our goal is to keep our customer’s fire alarm systems up to date and install a system for anyone who may not have one. We believe safety is the number one priority. To ensure our systems are functioning properly, we offer a monthly or quarterly affordable maintenance plan.
