Fire Panel Monitoring FAQs
What is a fire alarm panel?
A local fire panel is designed to detect a fire in your building and alert the occupants that they need to evacuate.
These local systems do not alert the Fire Department that there is an emergency onsite unless you have Fire Alarm Monitoring as part of your solution.
TELSCO provides Fire Alarm Monitoring by installing a Fire Alarm Monitoring Panel that is connected to your local alert system.
Does a fire alarm system have to be monitored?
Fire alarm monitoring may be a requirement for your fire panel as determined by the AHJ (authority having jurisdiction) or your insurance company. The building size, occupancy number and occupancy type may affect your requirement.
Although it may not be a requirement, TELSCO highly recommends fire alarm monitoring for any building with a fire panel to ensure the safety of the occupants.
