Fire Alarms – they are probably the most important warning system in your business.
When fire breaks out, a suitable, fully functional fire alarm system is a vital first line of defence, helping to save lives and enabling fire fighters to hopefully limit the damage caused to your premises.
But like any functioning device, fire alarms are subject to wear and tear. An alarm system left unchecked can begin to deteriorate and standby batteries will lose power – the results of this could be fatal.
As well as being a requirement of your insurance provider it is a legal requirement that all fire alarm systems are tested regularly. Article 17 of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 states that the person responsible for the premises must ensure a weekly test is carried out by a competent person; this can be the landlord, manager or a person who has been properly trained.
This is where Securi-Guard can help. Our team of highly trained and experienced personnel will ensure you always meet the requirements of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
We are available when you need us and will carry out testing and checking procedures to ensure that your fire alarm system is functioning to its optimum capability. After all, the safety of your staff and business are at stake.
If required, we can also assist you when carrying out your six monthly fire alarm evacuation exercise.
By carrying out these tests on a regular basis staff working on site will feel safe in the knowledge that you, as their employer/landlord, are treating both their safety and the safety of the building as a priority.
Regular system tests are one of the most important parts of fire alarm maintenance.
