Fire alarm systems
The key to ensuring your fire alarm system is going to perform as intended is a complete and thorough inspection of all of its components. With annual, semiannual and quarterly inspections, organizations can protect themselves and gain the peace of mind that their system is fully functional.
We can design, build and install everything from the simplest of systems to designs that incorporate the most technologically sophisticated products currently available on the market to meet your needs. Our highly experienced technicians are factory trained and certified to work on all major brands of fire alarm panels.
Valley Fire’s in-house fire alarm system design team boasts a number of professional certifications and designations and uses leading-edge technologies like AutoCAD to deliver professional-grade system designs.
While sprinklers are critical to your fire protection plan, Valley Fire provides a full range of services and products for another essential part of the plan: fire alarms. We inspect to protect and offer fast repairs of any problems large or small.

Fire alarm inspection and testing
Ongoing support and service to installed fire alarm systems is crucial, which is why Valley Fire has committed professionals working every day to ensure that the alarm systems are functioning and ready to sound when an emergency happens.
When we come to your facility for inspection and testing, we’ll do the following:
- Test all fire alarm control panel (FACP) and notification appliance circuit (NAC) panel batteries.
- Test all building devices tied into the FACP.
- Pull down the release on pull stations to trigger alarms and reset the pull stations upon completion.
Smoke detectors, heat detectors and duct detectors are all tested per manufacturers’ recommended testing methods:
- Ensure horns are sounding and strobes are flashing in sync.
- Confirm that the central station is receiving fire alarm control panel signals.
We will test the functionality of all fire alarm systems and components while documenting any deficiencies found and recommending corrective measures.
