Fire Alarm Systems – Managing Risk

Fire alarms provide early warning of fire to help evacuate a building in time to save lives and damage and it is therefore vital that they are implemented within your commercial premises.

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, appoints responsibility on a person within an organisation to carry out risk assessments to identify, manage and reduce the risk of fire. Dependent upon the nature of the premises, the assessment could show the need for installation of a fire alarm.
