Conflagration’s Cost And Causes
The research paper entitled Total Cost of Fire in the United States by Buffalo University states that damage from fire is a substantial source of loss for local businesses and the national economy. According to the report, the impact represents about 1.9% of the total US GDP, put in dollars; this totals approximately $328.5 billion.
The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) compiles an annual list of reported causes. In the year ending 2019, the last released report shows the top incidents to be HVAC malfunctions, electrical issues, human error, cooking, and most insidiously arson. These varied and wide-ranging origins show that stand-alone consumer-grade smoke detectors are not enough.
The best protection against complete loss or death is a fire alarm system with central station monitoring. Combining a dedicated support team, localized sensors, and AI-enabled alerts results in earlier identification of the signs and quicker resolution by rolling emergency responders.
In order to locate the slightest signs of ignition, we use a mix of standard units using ionization, thermal sensing, and optical. In addition, we add a network of aspirating smoke detectors. These advanced units are a thousand times more sensitive and efficient than all the others. Utilizing a wide net approach makes your business better covered, and insurance costs can be reduced considerably.
An alarm system that only signals locally may chase thieves away, but a fire will continue unabated. Connecting to a remote monitoring service, you can be assured the notification is acted on immediately. By using artificial intelligence, the incidents of false alarms are reduced, meaning you receive fewer anxiety-inducing midnight calls.
