The fire alarm system consists of fire sensors. They are waterflow, pull station, smoke and heat detectors. These are located throughout the building. They are connected to a main alarm panel. This panel is connected to loud speakers or horns that produce a loud alarm throughout the building and the surrounding areas.  


Fire alarm systems are required only in specific types of important and public buildings by Code. However, it is wise to provide it for people who work in these environments. Smoke detectors are used to sense smoke.   Heat detectors detect sudden increase in heat.

There is also a strobe on the outside of the building.  It has a response indicator (small red light) that is placed outside a door. This lights up if the smoke detector  It’s connected to the fire alarm, signaling that the fire alarm has been activated and helps firefighters locate the building.here is an active fire.
