The Importance of Reliable Fire Alarm Service in Assisted Living Homes
When it comes to protecting the safety of residents in assisted living homes, having a reliable fire alarm system is crucial.

These requirements are set forth by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), Texas Health and Human Services, and the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS).
