Fire Alarm System Testing, Inspection, and Maintenance
At Pacific Fire & Security, we specialize in life safety systems testing and inspections. While we excel at design, engineering, and installation, our main priority is ensuring that your current systems are up to code and running as designed.
You may think that you are good to go once your building’s fire and security systems are officially installed. However, you’ll need to partner with a fire protection agency that provides routine testing and inspections, ensuring that your building continuously meets federal and state regulations.
At Pacific Fire & Security, we provide every service you need to ensure your business remains protected. This includes comprehensive inspection, testing, certification, monitoring, and maintenance. Where other firms contract out these different services and perform them all at varying times of the year, we are proud to say we are different. We execute all our work in-house, coordinating all your annual inspections, testing, and maintenance simultaneously to make your life that much easier.
Our success has been built through our proven processes and reliable service, allowing us to form long-lasting relationships with our customers. We have a strong track record of delivering the highest level of support and unwavering quality assurance for all our services.
