Just one thing you want to be sure to do, is make sure your current insurance covers alarm installations, you need errors and ommisions coverage, and most likely a new contract form, with limits of liability statements, Fire alarm installations are not like electrical jobs, they carry heavy liability risk.

I'm happy about there not being a book called "Fire Alarm Systems for Dummies" for sale.

I used to do lots of fire alarm for another company. It took a good week of reading the fire alarm code book to understand it. If you thought the nec was hard to follow just read through the fire alarm. Once you understand how it is writen it is easy to follow. Also have a hightlighter handy for the general knowledge finds.
