Fire alarm systems are our first defense against danger — when seconds count, it’s the fire alarm that first alerts building occupants, authorities, and responders of a situation. Without a fire alarm system, quick building evacuations, speedy emergency responses, and overall safety are drastically compromised.
Technology is changing the world and has improved fire protection. Today’s fire alarm systems have unique capabilities that can be customized to protect all kinds of properties with unique demands. From addressable systems to wireless devices to entire networks that communicate and protect multiple buildings in a campus setting, technology driven solutions are abundant.

Voice Evacuation Systems
Sometimes, fear and panic can overtake a space in the event of an emergency — especially in crowded, high traffic areas and in high rise buildings. Voice Evacuation Systems combat this instinct with calm announcements throughout a building, assisting people with orderly evacuation procedures. Whether it be in response to a fire alarm activation, a severe weather evacuation, or other danger, the voice evacuation system provides clear communication.
Firefighter telephones can also allow for improved communication for a Fire Department emergency responders on the scene, creating dedicated two-way contact points.
Elevator Recall Systems
Essential requirements of Municipal Codes, an Elevator Recall System eliminates the potential danger of passengers being trapped in an elevator in the case of a fire and allows the fire department to take control of the elevators to quickly get firefighters to the necessary areas.
Area of Rescue Assistance Systems
These “safe havens” normally in stairwells, creating a calmer, controlled refuge for occupants in the event of a fire. Fox Valley Fire & Safety professionals can work with you to put a system in place. Those in danger have designated safe evacuation locations with communication equipment in place. The system provides two-way communication with onsite emergency personnel to provide the most efficient and safest exit of a property that has become dangerous.
