Protecting and saving lives with public safety computers

Public safety computers provide command control for fire alarm systems, mass notification systems, building automation technology and other equipment that is critical to saving lives, protecting property and managing emergencies.

Certification for public safety computers

The UL 864 certification has been the standard for control technology and accessories for fire alarm systems since 1948. Updated every few years, the UL 864 Ninth Edition is the current standard, having taken effect in December 2008. With the exception of Europe, the standard is accepted worldwide by the fire protection industry and is the most significant and widely used standard for certifying fire and safety systems.

At Comark, all of our fire life safety systems are designed for UL 864 Ninth Edition certification, along with certification for ULC-S527-11 3rd Edition and UL 2572. We take pride in ensuring that all of our UL products comply with the life safety standard codes established by the National Fire Protection Association.

FAQs: what are public safety computers?

Public safety computers, also known as fire and life safety systems, are technology that enables the companies, building managers and public safety officials to better protect populations during emergencies. Public safety computers can help to alert people within the building when a fire or natural disaster occurs, using sensors that detect smoke, fire and other hazards. Public safety computers may also help to control the response to emergencies, activating sprinkler systems or fire suppression measures and controlling HVAC systems to limit the spread of smoke or hazardous substances through ventilation systems.
