As a leading fire protection company, Fire & Life Safety America is experienced in providing the following services to hospitals and health systems:
Fire and Life Safety of America (FLSA) has been with Northside Hospital for one year and so far they have lived up to our expectations. We have had several instances over the last year where we needed FLSA that same day or the day after and they responded without a fuss. They have quality, educated, and enthusiastic technicians that seem to care about our facilities. If we have ever had any issues with reports, service, repairs, and/or inspections they are easy to communicate with and always try to accommodate our demands, which I am sure are not always so easy. I thank them for this. In Healthcare there is a culture that demands customer service and a safe environment for our patients, and Life Safety Systems functionality is absolutely essential to providing that safe environment of care every healthcare facility owner wants. I would recommend FLSA to any Healthcare system because I believe they are professional, caring, and truly want to build relationships.

The healthcare industry has many regulating authorities that verify essential procedures and facility standards. Fire & Life Safety America has been providing life safety and fire protection inspections on various life safety systems for healthcare facilities for over 10 years. During this time, FLSA has created a proactive approach to meeting regulatory standards adopted by Federal, State, and local agencies including Fire Marshals, The Joint Commission, and DNV Healthcare.
FLSA has partnered with Building Reports, using their technology with hand-held devices for our inspection technicians and a unique barcoding system to inventory all life safety devices within the healthcare facility. Our fire and life technicians capture crucial information including device type, device location, status of inspection, NFPA standard and complete inventory of all life safety devices within the facility. In addition, Building Reports technology systematically displays the Life Safety and Environment of Care Standards coinciding with the NFPA codes, tracking the inventory against the last 4 inspections to verify device counts remain accurate during every inspection.
As a premier fire protection and life safety solutions company, Fire & Life Safety America understands and respects the regulatory procedures of the healthcare industry and the steps taken towards compliance. FLSA’s service team meets quarterly with our clients to review their reports and provide supporting documents for The Joint Commission binders. This attention to customer support and detail is what differentiates us from other fire protection companies.
