Frequently Asked Questions
Fire extinguishers should be inspected by a trained and certified professional once a year. The inspector should record the inspection details on the fire extinguishers tag to ensure it is regularly maintained and in working condition.
A professional fire protection company can educate you on the options and requirements for fire protection systems according to code and your business’s unique needs. Fire alarms, fire extinguishers, and sprinkler systems are examples of fire protection systems.

If you are trying to enhance the measures you have taken for fire protection in Edmonton, then fire alarms are the most standard fire safety system. No matter how great the existing firefighting systems are, ensuring that the people inside know the danger is the top priority.
We can install an effective alarm system into your newly constructed building, retrofit alarms into existing properties, and maintain your current fire alarm. Alberta fire codes require that certified professionals install and maintain such alarms. Fire protection in Edmonton is only complete with the approvals of reliable authorities. That’s why it is crucial to call us rather than attempting to test it yourself.
A fire alarm can protect the people inside of a building, but to protect the building itself, you’ll need an effective sprinkler system to douse the fire in water. Alberta Fire Code requires you to have your fire protection systems regularly inspected by the right professionals and insurance companies. While sprinklers are typically associated with large commercial and industrial buildings, it’s common to have sprinkler systems in apartment buildings or houses. Call us to find out how a sprinkler system could increase the safety of your property.
Fire extinguishers are a must-have to minimize damage and increase building safety. Alberta Fire code requires fire extinguishers, a standard part of fire safety inspections. That’s why they must be easily accessible and require yearly maintenance. We have a wide range of extinguishers and other fire products and have an expert team to advise you about where these products should be kept and provide routine inspections and maintenance.
If a disaster strikes and the fire department gets called to your property, firefighters can use hydrants as a crucial water source to put out the fire and preserve your property. While the municipality usually maintains public hydrants, the owners must maintain private hydrants annually to flush out debris. Similarly, standpipes require annual maintenance. These are available either as dry standpipes (which are not filled with water until needed and can only be used by firefighters) or wet standpipes (which are always pressurized with water and can be used by building occupants).
Fires are a leading cause of damage in both commercial and residential kitchens. However, a stove fire suppression system could prevent property loss and injury if you have a restaurant or are an avid home chef. Grease and oils are particularly hazardous, and the bustle of a restaurant kitchen can result in flammable items getting too close to the heat. That’s why built-in suppression systems – either automatic or manual – can help to prevent a sudden kitchen fire before it causes extensive damage.
A fire protection system appropriate for a single-family home may not be ideal for a business or factory. Getting the right fire protection system for your Edmonton property is crucial for ensuring safety and keeping your assets safe from any damage by the system already in use. If you’re an electric store owner, you may require a particular hazard fire protection system that doesn’t use water, but if your warehouse is in a freezing area, an antifreeze sprinkler system is required. At Amptec Fire & Security, we can assess your building and property to search for a system that works the best for you. Contact us today to schedule an inspection.
How do you know your building is safe when you’re not there? For your peace of mind, we provide around-the-clock fire protection monitoring in Edmonton. We receive a notification as soon as a smoke detector or fire alarm goes off, and we contact the fire department immediately. Your home or business will be protected, even if you’re not there. The fast response time is critical to allow the fire department to save your property and stop the damage before it gets worse.
