Understanding Basic Fire Alarm Systems
Before we can reasonably discuss alarm systems you should know the fundamentals in order to perform emergency work & it’s important for electrical contractors to understand the basics of fire alarm systems. Many people tend to confuse the distinction between fire alarms and fire suppression systems. The modern fire alarm system is capable of detecting water flow in a sprinkler system, smoke and heat from a small flame, or an activated pull station, and reporting this information to on-site personnel to any location in the world

Fire suppression
These systems can be divided into several categories:
Fire sprinkler systems are designed to put out a fire by dousing it with water. Systems working on a total flooding principle apply an extinguishing agent to an enclosed space in order to achieve a concentration of the agent (volume percent of the agent in air) adequate to extinguish the fire.

In local application, the agent is applied directly onto a fire or into the region of a fire. There are some systems employing this technique but the most common method of local application is by manually operated wheeled or portable fire extinguishers. Fire extinguishers are generally self contained portable appliances to be manually used to fight a fire. No alarms are generated by their usage.

Fire Alarms
Alarms can also be divided into categories. It generally is four types.
An alarm system which is activated only by someone operating a Manual Call Point. Fire alarms vary in complexity and control. Fires warning (also known as Evacuations of Life safety) consist of audible and visual devices such as horns, strobes, bells, and sometimes speakers to warn occupants to evacuate the building.

Fire monitoring systems are used to notify a remote site that either an alarm has occurred of there is trouble with some part of the overall fire systems.

Automatic fire alarm system activated by heat detectors and manual call points, when pre-determined temperature is exceeded in the space; the various systems are often combined in many different designs. Fire sprinkler systems are required to be monitored if there are more than 100 sprinkler heads. Fire warning systems do not necessarily have be monitored since they are intended to warn occupants but mostly likely they will have a fire alarm transmitted to send an alarm signal to a central monitoring station.

One of the most important and frequently over look basic functions for the property manager or owner to perform is to ensure the central monitoring station has an up to date company monitoring site to call in case of emergency. Because of the nature of fire alarms which do not generate activity like a burglar alarm; these lists are often overlooked and consequently are years out of date. If the alarm company doesn’t have an up to date list they can’t notify you of a problem or disaster.

Frequently Asked Questions...

Ca Insurance Payout Question?

Can someone please explain to me what the payout of a car is if something happens to the car (if the car is stolen, totaled, fire) if the car only has liability insurance? Will you get any type of insurance money back, or at least the blue book value of the car?
I forgot to add that I am in South Carolina and I have State Farm Insurance.


If you only have liability coverage, you will not be reimbursed for any comprehensive loss - fire, theft, vandalism etc. Why would you think you would? Nobody would carry such coverage if that were the case. If you are in an accident, and depending on your state's comparative negligence rules, you could recover from the other party. You will get the actual cash value, not the blue book.
