What are Maintenance Agreements and who needs 1?
Maintenance Agreements are contracts signed between the property owner and a state fire marshall-licensed company to service the fire alarm, sprinkler or hood extinguishing systems in a commercial building. State law requires maintenance agreements between the property owner and a licensed contractor for alarm systems, sprinkler systems, hood extinguishing systems, automatic smoke control systems and off-site monitoring of these systems.

The agreement provides that the fire monitoring company service the system within 24 hours after receipt of a trouble call. The property owner is responsible for providing a copy of the agreement to BCFD and the fire monitoring company is responsible for notifying BCFD if the agreement lapses or is canceled.
