What is a Fire Alarm System?
A fire alarm system is a network of alarms designed to alert you to danger thus saving lives and also property. They are something that is often overlooked or simply forgotten about till they are needed. A fire alarm system will essentially be a network linking various types of detectors and alarms to a central hub or control panel. This will have a status indication and may have a remote signal to alert the emergency services. It is also used for drills, so staff know what to do in the case of a fire and also for servicing. The main control panel is the brain of the operation it is linked to various types of detectors and alarms from smoke detectors to address systems and manual call points. You can read more about the various range of systems on our blog: Fire Alarm Categories – A Quick Overview.
