Set the New Year on Fire
With the approach of the New Year, now is the perfect time to make sure your business is starting off in the best possible way. The NFPA requires annual service for certain parts of fire alarm, fire sprinkler, fire pumps and fire suppression systems, so it’s wise to maintain a checklist of all of your systems to ensure that everything is updated regularly and properly secured.
At Ivanco, Inc., we encourage our clients to take a few simple steps to ensure the safety of their businesses so that everything is safe, secure and running efficiently – especially when it comes to fire alarms and other fire protection devices.

· Check fire extinguishers and replace any that might be faulty
· Make sure that sprinkler systems function properly

· Consult with your security systems provider to see that all systems have been updated and tested and discuss any suggestions they might have to strengthen or streamline the integration of your fire systems
· Contact your service provider to review your fire protection system service records so that you know for certain your systems meet requirements and are compliant with NFPA regulations
· Hire a security service to design and install systems for your business if you don’t have one
