Hospital Fire Protection
According to the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), patients within healthcare facilities are presumed to be incapable of self-preservation. Therefore, their safety depends on an appropriate and effective combination of in-place fire and life safety features along with an acceptable hospital staff response.
State Systems provides licensed and certified fire protection inspections for all our hospital fire protection services and adheres to the most stringent inspection and fire code regulation procedures as outlined by the NFPA and local fire codes. We can examine a hospital’s existing fire and life safety features as well as provide training to hospital staff members.
Hospital Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems
State Systems is a leading provider of clean agent fire suppression systems that protects healthcare facilities—including hospitals, nursing homes and major medical facilities—throughout TN, AR, MS where there is a need for quick reaction to a fire, where patients are present, where fire may strike day or night and where damage from conventional agents cannot be tolerated.
We proudly carry and offer installation and maintenance services for ANSUL and FM-200 fire suppression systems—call us or contact us online to learn more.
Hospital Fire Alarm Systems
Here at State Systems, we install fire alarm systems for hospitals and other healthcare facilities in Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Alabama. Fire alarms are the first response system for alerting hospital staff, visitors and patients of a fire or emergency. Our highly skilled fire safety team performs annual fire alarm testing for facilities to make sure the building’s fire alarm system will operate if and when a fire emergency occurs.
Hospital Fire Sprinklers & Pumps
Automatic fire sprinkler systems and fire pumps provide hospitals and other healthcare facilities 24-hour fire protection. The NFPA outlines that complete automatic sprinkler protection is required for all new facilities. Listed “quick response” sprinklers should be installed throughout the smoke compartments containing patient sleeping rooms. Sprinkler protection is also required in smoke compartments in all existing healthcare facilities that have undergone renovation.
Since so much depends on sprinkler operation, it is critical to install and maintain these systems correctly—they must be installed in accordance with NFPA 13, Standard for the Installation of Sprinkler Systems.
Call State Systems for sprinkler installation—our expert technicians are familiar with the rules and regulations pertaining to sprinklers.

Hospital Fire Extinguishers
Portable fire extinguishers effectively extinguish nearly 95% of all reported fires –making them an absolute necessity for hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and other healthcare facilities.
In accordance with codes and regulations, hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living communities are required to provide a sufficient number of fire extinguishers throughout each building. Additionally, employees of these types of healthcare facilities are required to know how to properly use fire extinguishers.
State Systems offers fire extinguisher installation and training services—call us at 901-531-6550 or contact us online to learn more.
Hospital Kitchen Fire Suppression Systems
Like other facilities, hospitals have kitchens that pose a fire threat. There are countless flammable components in hospital kitchens, including cooking oil, gas, grease, and alcohol, which can easily be triggered by the extreme heat produced from multiple ovens and grills. In such a hazardous environment, a properly installed kitchen fire suppression system is especially important.
These well-established, quality fire suppression systems are designed to protect the following areas associated with cooking equipment:
- Ventilating equipment including hoods, ducts, plenums, and filters
- Fryers, griddles and range tops
- Upright, natural charcoal or chain-type broilers
- Electric, lava rock, mesquite or gas-radiant char-broilers and woks
Give us a call to learn more about the kitchen fire suppression systems we install.
Vent Hood Cleaning for Hospitals
A dirty grease trap or vent hood in any commercial kitchen is like kindling for a fire. Establishments that cook food commercially—including hospitals and other healthcare facilities—should have vent hood cleaning scheduled on a regular basis, as specified by national and local fire prevention codes.
A clean vent hood and exhaust system drastically reduces the chance of a fire in healthcare facilities. In addition to reducing fire hazards, a regularly cleaned exhaust system is also more efficient at removing heat and odors from kitchens.
Some of the services our hood cleaning technicians provide are:
- Cleaning of interior and exterior of kitchen hoods
- Grease removal from throughout hood and exhaust systems
- Filter replacement and removal
- Cleaning of all accessible areas of exhaust ductwork
- Exhaust fan maintenance
Call us or contact us online to learn more about the professional vent hood cleaning services we provide in the Mid-South.
Emergency & Exit Lighting
Proper emergency and exit lights are essential to keeping individuals safe in exiting a hospital or other healthcare facility in case of an emergency situation. During serious power outage situations, emergency lighting illuminates all exit passages, including corridors, stairwells, ramps and escalators, exit lighting points the way to safe exits. In an emergency situation, building occupants can become disoriented and overall safety can be compromised if either the emergency or exit lighting fails to activate.
Don’t take the components of your emergency and exit lighting system for granted. Let State Systems check your batteries, charging systems and bulbs to ensure you’re prepared in case of an emergency. We keep up with all maintenance and recordkeeping so you don’t have to.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also requires both monthly and annual testing for emergency and exit lighting—we can help you with both. Just give us a call to learn more.

Access Control Solutions for Hospitals
Most hospitals require employees, doctors, volunteers, medical students and contractors to wear photo IDs. In many cases, patients and visitors receive ID badges as well. Many hospitals and healthcare facilities are now realizing that it makes sense to link hospital ID badges to full access control systems.
Hospital access control systems strengthen the overall security of a facility by limiting access to restricted areas and permitting only authorized personnel to enter.
Call us or contact us online for access control system installation.
Nurse Call Systems
We know that healthcare facilities need a nurse call system that is reliable, efficient in operation and flexible enough to meet the changing demands of staff and patients.
That’s why we are a proud distributor of the Rauland-Borg Responder line of nurse call systems and products. Rauland-Borg Responder nurse call systems are top-of-the-line, highly customizable and designed to meet the unique communication needs of any hospital and extended or assisted living facility.
Paging & Intercom Systems for Hospitals
Paging and intercom systems help hospitals and other healthcare facilities locate employees, notify building occupants of emergencies and broadcast routine announcements to all building occupants quickly and efficiently. We can install simple, one-way paging systems as well as more complex two-way intercom systems depending on a healthcare facility’s needs.
Structured Cabling Systems
Modern hospitals and healthcare facilities must have a strong structured cabling foundation. This is the basic foundation on which all other network equipment depends. Without this foundation, the work of a hospital would come to a halt. However, with a strong foundation, doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals can thrive and provide the highest level of medical care—something all patients deserve.
Contact us for hospital structured cabling services.
White Noise & Sound Masking Solutions
White noise machines are designed to drown out the noises in a setting or environment that make it difficult for individuals to fall asleep. Clinical studies reveal that people who use a white noise machine wake up more rested and rejuvenated and fall asleep far more quickly than those who do not. As such, the use of white noise machines is becoming increasingly common in hospitals.
Patients tend to give hospitals a poor rating when it comes to quietness in and around patient rooms. By installing white noise machines in patients’ rooms, hospitals and healthcare facilities can contribute to achieving the ideal patient care experience. White noise machines can even improve employee health and well-being—studies have shown a direct correlation between sound decibel levels in work environments and employee blood pressure levels and heart rates.
Call State Systems today at 901-531-6550 to learn more about white noise machines and sound masking solutions.
