What to Look for in a Fire Protection Contractor

Part of being a responsible property owner means preparing for the worst case scenario—preventing fire damage. If you own a commercial building, it’s important that you contact an experienced Grand Rapids fire protection company that will be able to help you protect your assets from fire damage.

Below, we have listed some of the top qualities you should look for in a professional fire protection contractor.

Licensed

It goes without saying that you’ll want to make sure that the fire protection company you hire knows what they’re doing. When a fire protection company is licensed, this means that the state of Michigan found them qualified to provide fire protection services. If you are interviewing a fire protection company that’s reluctant to share their licensing information, keep looking. If a fire occurs, you’ll want to be sure that the products and systems you paid for will work properly. You’ll only get this peace of mind when you work with a licensed fire protection contractor.

Insured

With any contractor, you’ll want to make sure they protect their workers through insurance. Without insurance, you’ll become liable for any injuries sustained on the job. This means that you will be responsible for paying medical expenses. To avoid this legal headache, make sure that the fire protection company properly insures their employees.

Knowledge of Fire Safety Regulations

In order to keep a building fire code-compliant, it’s important that you hire a company that is aware of any new revisions to fire safety regulations. Before hiring a fire protection contactor, be sure to ask about their knowledge of standards set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), as well as state and local codes. You will also need a fire protection contractor who will be able to keep your building compliant with fire safety standards set by your insurance.

References

When looking for a reliable fire safety contractor, you’ll want to make sure that their references are relevant to the type of work you want done. For example, if you are looking for a fire alarm contractor, you’ll want a company that has relevant experience. It’s not uncommon for fire protection companies to specialize in a certain range of services. Make sure your fire protection contractors are experienced in the fire protection services you need.

When the contractor hands you their references make sure that they are relevant to your needs and that they are fairly recent. Sometimes when companies fall under new management, the quality of their services suffer. References from recent customers will help you form an accurate picture of how their business is run.

Full Range of Services

If you need a range of services, it’s often best to work with one company. It’s more convenient to have all your fire safety needs covered by one contractor, as opposed to trying to co-ordinate multiple third-parties. Keep your business simple by relying on a contractor experienced in a wide variety of services who also offers a range of fire safety products.

Fire Pros had to order the part. So the repair took a little longer then we had hoped. Had to listen to the beeping a lot even though we would silence it, it would start beeping again.. This was not covered under warranty....That's why the cost rating is low...

Amazing




This is my first year Managing out at Camp Petosega and I am so appreciative of the time and service John provided during his visit. He took the time to explain rules, regulations, and how things work with all our fire suppression systems throughout the park. He's very knowledgeable, personable, and communicates clearly. Will gladly have him out again for our inspections.


Professional service




Knowledgeable tech. freindly service.


One question




The old system had a way to drain off moisture in the compressor tank. Is there a way to set up the new system with a drain valve?
