False alarms are more than an inconvenience or annoyance.
They cost time, money, and put lives at risk.
Over the next few weeks we shall be sharing articles to explain the types of false alarms, how to reduce or eliminate them, and what you as Duty Holder or Responsible Person can do to prevent them*
We are available to advise and conduct a survey on your system and false alarms log, but hope this series of articles might help guide you when carrying out your assessment of false alarms.
* Any changes or amendments to your fire alarm and detection system should be made after carrying out a thorough risk assessment, and with consideration of the fact that changes made to reduce false alarms may increase the time to respond in the event of an actual fire.
