Central station companies provide around-the-clock alarm signal monitoring and reporting. They also provide the installation, testing and maintenance of the signaling equipment installed at the protected prooperties. FM Approvals has worked with the fire alarm industry to develop the certification for central stations that is consistent with NFPA 72 "The National Fire Alarm Code" requirements.
SentryNet is compliant with FM Approval Standard 3011 "Central Station Service for Fire Alarms and Protective Equipment Supervision" for more specific information on listing requirements. Standard 3011 is largely derived from the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 72 and encompasses several major areas of Central Station operation.
• CS Facilities
• Equipment (monitoring & receiving)
• Runner Service
• Central Station Personnel/Mgmt. Oversight
• Testing & Maintenance @ PP
