Your new ANSUL/Amerex Fire Protection system will need to be tested by the local fire department. We will coordinate with the fire department and your jobsite to pick the best possible time for the system test to occur. Once your system has been successfully tested, your system will be armed and ready for service. Your system will also receive a system tag certifying the system for 6 months.


According to NFPA 25 your fire system will need to be serviced at a minimum of twice per year. If you are interested in setting up a continued service plan, we provide that as well. please click here for more information.
