Our Annual Maintenance Program
WCMCI Fire & Safety`s annual maintenance program includes a comprehensive inspection of all "Home Fire Safety" equipment installed in your home. A CFAA fire alarm technician adheres to the Ontario Fire Code, and UL/ULC standards when performing maintenance and service on Smoke Alarms, Carbon Monoxide Alarms and Fire Extinguishers.
Smoke and CO detector tester is sprayed into each Smoke Alarm and Carbon Monoxide Detector to functionally test the respective sensors. Security System Smoke and CO Alarms are also functionally tested and the fire signal is confirmed to the monitoring station. Each detector is cleaned with pressurized air and receives replacement commercial grade Energizer batteries. The age, and location are recorded and the device type is verified to ensure smoke alarms are providing the best possible coverage and will not false alarm.
Fire Extinguishers are inspected according to NFPA 10. Additionally, fire extinguishers needing 6 or 12 year maintenance are removed, serviced, re-certified and returned. Home and rental property owners are not inconvenienced as WCMCI Fire & Safety does the leg work.
A pillow test is conducted to ensure the sound level pressure of all Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarms is 75 decibels in the bedrooms so when an alarm sounds during the night while everyone is sleeping the entire family will alerted so everyone can exit safely.
A detailed report listing the make, model, location and the test results of the equipment protecting your home and family is included.

Why Do Things Differently
We truly wish we could convince the 535,000 home owners in Ottawa/Gatineau to have WCMCI Fire & Safety care for your family's fire and safety equipment maintenance. In fact, our current client base is just a drop in the bucket. One of our primary goals is to continue to educate the public that there is an alternative to the status quo as missing and faulty smoke alarms continue to result in fire loss, injuries and fatalities still.

Time For Change
Currently, there is no requirement in Ontario, or Canada, for a certified fire alarm technician to do the annual maintenance on residential fire safety equipment. But there is interest in the Ottawa Region where WCMCI Fire & Safety is located as we continue to expand our client base of safety conscious individuals who are choosing us.
Since 2015, we have been removing 100s of expired and non-functioning smoke and CO alarms annually. We have also been busy retrofitting homes with wireless interconnected alarm systems saving property owners tens of thousands of dollars in electrician, and permit costs. We are very proud that we have the ability to add early warning time for families to escape danger sooner with such a simple upgrade.
Additionally, we continue to ensure fire extinguishers are being serviced, and re-certified and that individual families receive basic fire extinguisher training. It only makes sense that if you own a fire extinguisher you know how to use it.
The main purpose of the WCMCI Fire & Safety annual maintenance program is to deliver a service aimed at making homes safer for the occupants living in them. We take care of everything including the scheduling.
