How to Ensure an Accurate Test Report After Annual Fire Alarm Inspection For Your San Francisco Hotel
Hotel owners in San Francisco know the importance of the annual fire alarm inspection. Firstly, staff and visitors’ safety are partly pegged on the hotel’s fire alarm system if a fire breaks out. Secondly, the law requires that fire alarm systems in hotels and other buildings are audited and a report generated at least once a year. However, the test reports should be as accurate as possible to guarantee the safety of people walking in to enjoy your services. How do you ensure you get an accurate test report?
First, a hotel manager should ensure that all devices comprising the fire alarm system are tested according to the NFPA 72 standards. However, this does not always happen, and some people using the testing process as a repair time for broken devices. Additionally, hotel managers and owners often have other businesses to take care of and may neglect their safety assurance roles. In this view, owners should hire fire alarm inspection experts like Aura Fire Safety.

After we issue a hotel manager with the ‘pass’ report, they are supposed to keep it safe until the next inspection. The report is the only proof showing that your alarm systems are working as required.
Why hotel fire alarm systems may need frequent inspections
We receive this question from many hotel owners and managers after explaining that systems require inspection before the end of the year. Often, this prescription is for systems that are aging and therefore depreciating inefficiency. Fire alarm systems manufacturers usually indicate this fact in the instructions manual, and it has since become an industry standard. The type of equipment, age, and working conditions are the principal determinants of inspection and service frequency. However, hotel owners may have to replace systems earlier than envisioned if the manufacturer discontinues support for the units installed or repair parts become scarce. We advise managers to consult local fire system suppliers to find out the systems’ age and always keep records.
