    When the alarm sprinkler system in our office building needed updating and an inspection, I had trouble finding a professional firm, but eventually found Premier Fire Alarms on the internet, they provide 24 hour service and these guys went to the extreme to get the job done. Check out their website or call (954) 797-7692.
