Fire Monitoring in Vancouver
Protecting Greater Vancouver Businesses
Fire monitoring is when a building's fire alarm panel is monitored by a central monitoring station which then notifies the fire department that there is a threat of fire.
When your fire alarm panel is monitored by our central monitoring station, it minimizes the risk to people and property because we notify the fire department immediately when an alarm is triggered. Without monitoring, your only hope is if someone calls 9-1-1.
The B.C. Building Code 188.8.131.52 and the Vancouver Building Bylaw state that fire alarm monitoring is required in buildings that:
- are designated as assembly with an occupant load over 300 ("installed in a building of assembly occupancy that has an occupant load more than 300 shall be designed to notify the fire department")
- have an automatic sprinkler system ("A fire alarm system that includes water flow-indicating devices shall be designed to notify the fire department")
- have a two-stage fire alarm system ("A 2 stage fire alarm system shall be designed to notify the fire department")
Automatic sprinkler systems are an important defence against the ravages of fire. But, what about property damage due to a leaking or malfunctioning sprinkler system? Let us monitor your sprinkler system. Like fire monitoring, it gives you confidence that our central station is guarding your property even if no one is on the premises.
