Fire Alarm Installation Servicing & Maintenance
Fire alarms are installed to protect your building and its occupants acting as an early warning system enabling a safe and timely evacuation from the building in the event of a fire. Keeping your fire alarm system adequately maintained will ensure the occupants are alerted in the event of a fire and also help to prevent false alarms.
A recent investigation by Which? has revealed unsafe smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors have been sold by a number of online sites. The unbranded alarms could be “putting lives at risk” with hundreds of listings for unbranded alarms failing basic smoke and gas tests.
