Fire Alarm Systems in Fire Stations

In our jurisdiction, we have a few older fire stations that have a fire alarm system. The fire alarm systems are not being monitored as per NFPA 72. We adopted the IFC 2015 and as per the IFC 2015, fire stations do NOT require a fire alarm system due to its occupancy classification. My question then is, if you have an existing fire alarm system that is NOT required, does it need to be monitored as per NFPA 72?
