by | Nov 1, 2017 | Security Systems and Services

There are four major components to any good fire protection system in your home or business and the best way that you can be certain of your safety is to work with a fire protection services company in NJ. Fire is a real threat to your livelihood, family, and home. Your home is filled with electronic devices, wiring, and other items that you do not even think about. Most people never go through the tragedy of a fire, but you should always be prepared.

Fire Extinguishers

While it seems obvious that an extinguisher is important, many homeowners do not have them in their homes or if they do, they have no idea where one is. Fire extinguishers are effective in putting out the night a fire 80% of the time. The use of one can stop a small fire from turning into a much larger problem. You should always be certain of where your fire extinguishers are located and everyone, family and employees, should be trained in their usage. Be sure to remember to have them inspected at least every 5 to 6 years.

Smoke and Fire Alarms

Both are vital parts of any fire protection system. If you are sleeping or not in a room where a fire starts, both can alert you. Smoke alarms detect the presence of smoke. Fire alarms can sense when the temperature has risen in your home. These are both important as they are able to alert you to the presence of a fire in your home or business. You should test both monthly to be sure of their efficiency.

Sprinkler Systems

Fire extinguishers are always good to have around, but you cannot beat a sprinkler system. When the sprinklers sense that the temperature in your home or business is at about 150°F they will react. The best part of a sprinkler system is that it requires no interaction to operate, nobody even needs to be in the building. If you are thinking the sprinkler system will go off and destroy all your possessions, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Each sprinkler is independent of all the others and only the sprinklers required at the site of a fire will go off. In that way damage to your property is limited. Newark Professional Fire Protection Corporation has been designing, installing, maintaining, and repairing sprinkler systems for more than 30 years.
