Your fire protection service provider goes belly up, what next?

Do not panic.

It’s happened. Your fire protection service provider has gone belly up. You’re going to have to start from scratch, and it’s not going to be pretty.

Before we dive in, what you need to do is make sure your fire provider actually has folded–or just packed up and left. We’ve heard a few stories of people who thought their fire providers had retired, and when they called, they found out they hadn’t–they had just changed the number on their website. So if you can, try calling your fire provider first.

You’ll need to take action pretty quickly to ensure that your business facility is compliant with necessary fire protection standards and that you are able to maintain your ongoing operations without having to deal with the hassles and costs of replacing your service provider yourself:

Make a list of the fire protection services you need to replace, such as:

– Fire sprinkler system testing and maintenance: AS1851- 2012

– Fire alarm system testing and maintenance: AS1851- 2012

– Fire extinguisher testing and maintenance: AS1851-2012

-Emergency lighting inspection: AS1851 – 2012

Determine what the costs of those services are per item.

Set a budget—This should include the entire process of getting all new fire protection services, including everything from initial inspections to installing new equipment to annual maintenance costs. Keep in mind that these items might not all be covered by insurance depending on what kind of policy you have or which company provides it—so make sure to check with them before starting any work!

Find out what is required by law and code in your area. This can vary widely depending on where you live; some states require certain types of inspections while others don’t at all!
Make sure that whatever system is installed meets those requirements.

Get quotes—Shop around! Look at local companies and national ones, too. And don’t forget online providers! You can get amazing deals online if you’re willing to do just a little bit of research first.
Make sure you get a quote that’s detailed and accurate. Don’t go with the lowest price just because it’s the lowest price. If the quote you have is vague or confusing, don’t be afraid to ask questions! The company should be able to go into detail about what they’re offering and why they’re offering it to you at that price point.

Make a list of local fire protection service providers who can provide those services for you.

What are the most important things you should look for in a new fire protection service provider?

– They must have a stellar reputation with their customers.

– They should have a broad range of services that meet all of your needs, including fire suppression systems, fire alarms, sprinkler systems, 24/7 after hours service and more.

– Their technicians should be fully qualified with relevant trades and technical certifications. Company should be a member of the Fire Protection Association of Australia (FPA).

– The technicians should be able to perform all necessary inspections and maintenance on your fire protection equipment.

– Their customer service team should be able to answer any questions you may have clearly and promptly.

It’s important to do your research before hiring a new fire protection service provider – here are some tips:

1) Look through online reviews and testimonials from previous customers.

2) Ask for references from past clients so you can contact them directly with any questions or concerns about their experience working with this company. 

Establish a plan for replacing each item, including timing and funding sources.

You should have a plan in place for replacing each item, including timing and funding sources.

Stay alert. Do you feel like your provider is starting to go under? Don’t rely on the company to notify you if they’re closing down. Stay alert and be prepared to make a change if needed.

Know your contracts. Make sure you understand what your contract says about terminating a service before it expires. If there is no termination clause, you could be stuck with the company until the contract expires.

Evaluate whether the current plan is providing the services needed to keep your business safe in case of a fire!

Hopefully, this will serve as a guide of what to do next in a similar situation. The best advice I can give you is this: research your options before committing to a company. Look at their past record and what they’ve done, and decide if you feel comfortable going with them. If so, go ahead and sign up with them. Otherwise, keep looking until you find a provider that has the right balance of service and price for you. And hopefully, in the end, you’ll have enough options to go around.
