Press, Articles & Publications

Centralized Fire ProtectionAccording to the most recent information available from the U.S. Fire Administration, “each year, there are an estimated 3,900 hotel and motel fires that cause 15 deaths, 100 injuries and $100 million in property losses.” In the recent Hotel Management magazine article, “Four Reasons Why Centralized Fire Protection Reporting is Vital,” Telgian Fire Safety Vice President and Automatic Fire Alarm Association (AFAA) President Tom Parrish explores the top four ways that hotels can maintain compliance with regulations, reduce the chance of any fire incidents and still stay within budget.

“In today’s saturated hospitality industry, hotels and hospitality venues must attract customers by providing a widening array of features aimed at the comfort and convenience of guests,” says Parrish. “While amenities such as in-house spas, rooftop clubs and five-star dining options may influence the customer’s decision when selecting accommodations, there is also an underlying expectation and obligation that all facilities will provide an appropriate level of safety.”

Parrish outlines advantages to the centralization of ITM services for fire- and life-safety systems including:

  • Faster Access to Crucial Data
  • Reporting Consistency
  • A One-Call Solution
  • Cost-Control Benefits
