Central Station Fire Alarm Service

- System installation at protected premises
- Signal monitoring
- Retransmission of signals and associated record-keeping
- Runner service
Central Station Service Delivery

A monitoring only company must operate under a subcontract with an alarm service company that is authorized to issue UL Certificates.
