Fire Protection

Fires spread fast, and in less than 30 seconds a small flame can turn into a major fire.  A monitored smoke and heat detection system communicates to the Circle Industries Monitoring Center 24/7 whether you are home or not.  Upon detection of the first signs of danger, the system will sound a siren to allow for safe evacuation.  Upon detection, the monitoring center will dispatch the local emergency personnel to keep your family and property safe.  Every second counts, so a monitored fire alarm system operates regardless of whether your alarm system is armed.

A home structure fire was reported every 85 seconds in the year 2010¹.  About 85% of all U.S. fire deaths in 2009 occurred in homes².  Further, most victims of fires die from smoke or toxic gases and not from burns².

Many people think of fire as bright, but it is actually pitch black³.  Fires quickly produce black smoke that can fill a house³.  The heat alone can rise to a temperature in five minutes that will cause everything in a room to ignite at once³.  This is commonly referred to as flashover³.  A smoke detector is key to early detection allowing safe evacuation.
