Regular maintenance and inspections are vital for the health and operation of your fire suppression system. However, did you know that it is also the law?
Failure to comply with fire safety laws can result in fines and other punishments. The local fire marshall is responsible for ensuring all applicable businesses comply with fire safety regulations in their jurisdiction.
Restaurants, auto body repair shops, and other businesses in the Houston area that use wet or dry chemical fire suppression systems might have noticed that they received a letter from their local government regarding the inspection and maintenance of their fire suppression system. Don’t ignore this letter.
Ensure that you schedule an inspection and maintenance service from a skilled fire protection company. If your local jurisdiction doesn’t get confirmation that an inspection has taken place, they will send the fire marshall to your location for a safety inspection. If your fire suppression has not been properly inspected and maintained, your business may face penalties.
How Does My Local Government Know That It Is Time For an Inspection?
You might think there is no way for the local government to track every restaurant and business that uses a chemical fire suppression system. However, you would be wrong. Local municipalities in the Houston area and most cities around the United States use a new tool called Compliance Engine.
Compliance Engine is a digital tool that local municipalities use to track fire safety compliance of businesses in their area. This tool allows them to see which businesses keep their fire suppression systems updated and maintained. It also allows them to send reminder letters and follow up with businesses that they don’t hear back from.
You are wrong if you thought your business would be lost in the shuffle. Local governments will not pass up the opportunity to generate additional funds for the municipality. In addition, fire safety is very important, so while Compliance Engine helps governments collect more money, it is also helping governments ensure that their citizens and local businesses are safe.
The good news is that your local municipality will send a friendly inspection reminder every six months to help you avoid fines. Also, if you work with a fire protection company, like Industrial Fire, you don’t have to worry about notifying your local governmental body because we will do it for you.
