Fire Section

  • Our Mission
    • We safeguard employees and visitors to Palm Beach County buildings by providing service for fire alarms and intrusion systems.

We are responsible for several hundred fire/intrusion alarm systems comprising several thousand electronic sensing devices. Referred to as “life safety systems”, the primary intent is to protect the life and safety of the public and employees within every facility. The secondary goal is to protect the County’s capital investment from fire and theft. We ensure that all fire alarm systems are maintained in accordance the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) requirements by regularly inspecting and testing each system.

We have earned the privilege of being recognized by Underwriter Laboratories and have the authority to issue certificates for fire alarm systems under our jurisdiction. We work closely with Fire Rescue to make sure all County facilities meet federal, state and local requirements.
