Health Choice Enterprises is an industry leader in providing fire door inspection and repair services.
We’ve been in the industry for over 20 years helping clients stay in compliance with their accreditation agencies. We primarily serve clients in the healthcare industry however we can provide inspection services for many others such as education, commercial, hospitality and industrial.
HCE understands that Fire Door Inspections are an integral part in ensuring the safety of staff, visitors, and patients. During a fire, compartmentalization along with safe and efficient egress play a key role in saving the lives of the people we serve in our communities.
When CMS adopted the NFPA-101 2012 life safety code this testing became a requirement in healthcare. Agencies like CMS, The Joint Commission, DNV and HFAP will all be requesting these reports to ensure compliance. In other occupancies, fire door and egress door inspections are required annually by the NFPA. Your local fire marshal may request your inspection report at any time.
