Annual Maintenance Program
Our maintenance program begins with a comprehensive inspection of all "Fire Safety" equipment. A certified fire alarm technician follows the Ontario Fire and Building Code guidelines, and the UL standard to perform Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Alarm maintenance and testing.
Smoke and CO alarm tester is sprayed into each Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarm to functionally test the sensors. Security System Smoke and CO Alarm testing is included to ensure a fire signal is received at the monitoring station. Detectors are cleaned with pressurized air and the batteries are replaced. We use Energizer Industrial grade batteries . The age of devices and locations are recorded on the inspection and maintenance report. CO alarms can be tested up to a 400-ppm concentration level.
Fire Extinguishers are inspected and service according to the NFPA 10. We will advise you if 6 or 12 year maintenance is required and can provide this service for you.
A pillow test is performed during alarm testing to ensure a smoke or CO activated in the basement can be heard in the bedrooms while your family is sleeping. A Smoke and Carbon Monoxide alarm should sound at 75 decibels in your bedroom at the pillow.
A detailed report is provided to the home owner which lists the make, model, location, test results and recommendation of the equipment protecting your home and family.

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.
