The Importance of Fire Alarm Monitoring

As fire alarm systems become more advanced, organisations across the UK have come to rely on these systems to provide early warning in the event of a fire, aiding in safe evacuation and alerting the emergency services.

Effective fire alarm systems can aid in the protection of people, property and assets. Push-button or automatic fire alarm activation during working hours is designed to alert people on your premises to the risk of fire and contacts the fire brigade for assistance. For high-risk environments, the fire brigade will automatically arrive to check the site, whereas lower-risk locations require a confirmation of fire before the emergency services will attend.

When a site is unoccupied, such as evenings, weekends and holidays, push-button fire alarm systems fail to be an effective means to alert people and services as there is nobody around to hear the warning sirens.

Fire alarm monitoring is an effective way to ensure that if a fire should occur when a building is empty, the alarms do not go unheard and the results are not detrimental. This service, provided by Churches Fire & Security, ensures that your building’s fire alarm system is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Should your fire alarm detect a fire, our monitoring programme ensures that key personnel are contacted immediately.

A key addition to any fire safety service, the cost of fire alarm monitoring is small in comparison to the cost of leaving your building unattended without monitoring, should a fire break out.
