What is a preventable response?

Sometimes, firefighters are called to buildings because of a malfunction in the automatic fire alarm system or because the system is triggered by something other than a fire. Since a false alarm, also known as a preventable response, causes such a drain on resources, city fire departments may fine the owners of buildings for these preventable false alarms.

These fees are meant to encourage building owners to keep their systems in top working order through regular inspections by a certified inspection service. They also help fire departments increase their resources for responses to actual emergencies.

With regular service and maintenance, you can prevent false alarms with your fire prevention systems. Contact the Austin fire safety inspection professionals of Ace Fire Equipment by calling 512-835-2020 to schedule an inspection for your fire safety equipment.
