What are the components of Life Safety Systems?

By February 10, 2021 No Comments

Life safety systems is the term used to describe the systems that are within a building to ensure the safety of those occupying the building. Having the proper life safety equipment in a building is important to protect the facility and the people within it from fires, break-ins, or other emergency situations.

Life safety systems include:

Fire Extinguishers – It is important to have the correct number and type of fire extinguishers placed throughout your facility to be able to extinguish fires should they occur. Fire extinguishers must be inspected monthly with a visual inspection and must undergo an annual inspection by a properly qualified and certified inspector. See NFPA for more details.

Fire Alarms – Fire alarms are an important part of any life safety systems. Alerting building occupants of a fire early on can help save lives and allow people to safely exit a burning building. Fire Alarms must undergo an annual inspection. See NFPA for more details..

Fire Suppression or Sprinkler Systems – Installing a fire sprinkler or fire suppression system is one of the best ways to make sure your property and the people inside are protected from fire. These systems suppress or extinguish a fire before it can cause extensive damage and must be inspected annually. See NFPA for more details.

Mass Notification Systems(MNS)These systems are used to keep people safe and informed in an emergency situation. Mass notification is used to communicate with a large group of people through text message, email or reverse 911 calling mechanisms.

CCTV Security Systems – CCTV security cameras can keep an eye on your facilities to protect your property and help you see what is going on in and around your business.

Access Control – An access control system ensures that only authorized personnel are able to enter your business or certain areas of your facility. Typically, access control systems use ID cards to limit who can enter a section of your building.

Emergency and Exit Lighting(E Lights) – Emergency and exit lighting allow building occupants to safely exit a building, even when the power is out in your building.

Alarm Monitoring –  Monitored alarm systems alert the proper authorities when a fire or security alarm goes off, protecting a building when it is unoccupied.

Performing monthly fire door inspections and fire extinguisher inspections will reduce the possible impact of a fire on staff, equipment and on buildings. Having fully operational fire fighting equipment at the correct locations and having clear egress for employees is a critical part of any fire safety plan.
