For many businesses across the Rancho Cucamonga area simply having a fire alarm system can only protect your business so far. Here are five benefits to investing in the fire alarm monitoring service at Mijac Alarms.
1. Reduced Response Time
A fire can grow from a single flame to a raging inferno in just moments, taking a thriving business to the ground in the blink of an eye. Employees focused on evacuating customers may not be able to alert the fire department in time to save the business.
However, a monitoring service will be alerted the second the alarm sounds and will contact the local fire department on your behalf.
2. It Can Save Lives
Smoke and toxic fumes can overwhelm a person in just moments, rendering them incapable of getting to safety. It takes less than 15 minutes to die from smoke inhalation and often a combination of factors reduces this time. The improved response times from using a monitoring service, such as that offered here at Mijac Alarms, gets rescuers to the fire quicker, thus potentially saving more lives.
3. Reduced Inventory Loss
If you own a business, you likely have the majority of your assets under one roof. If a fire breaks out, these assets can quickly be destroyed. Even with insurance, this can devastate commercial property, effectively putting them out of business. A fire alarm monitoring servicecan help reduce this potential loss, giving businesses a better chance to recover from the event.
4. Minimize Damage to the Building
It can take as little as five minutes for a fire to consume a building. The quicker the fire department can get to the fire, the less likely the business will be considered a total loss. While employees are focused on evacuations, the alarm monitoring service is contacting the proper authorities, getting help to the location quicker.
5. Provides Peace of Mind
The majority of business fires happen after hours when the building is empty and no one is around to call the fire department. When you have a monitoring service watching over your business, you can rest easy knowing that if disaster strikes, help will be on its way as quickly as possible.
