What is a Monitoring Station and who needs 1?
Any commercial building required to have a fire alarm system or fire sprinkler system must also have a Maintenance Agreement for those systems and a Monitoring Station for the system. The monitoring station does just what its name implies - it monitors the fire alarm and extinguishing systems to make sure they are turned on, in proper working order and notifies the company in case of a fire-related emergency.

The monitoring facility is required to have a Boulder City Business License and proof of liability insurance and must comply with applicable NFPA standards and state Fire Marshall regulations. These stations require an annual permit application and fee of $77.
