We have contracted C & M Alarms for installation, upgrading
and maintenance of our fire alarm systems for nearly 20 years. Throughout that time they have provided a professional service at competitive cost and have been quick to react to both emergency call-outs and to our additional installation needs. Over the years a number of new buildings have been added and the system has been adapted to include these as appropriate.

In the summer of 2002 a lightning strike caused major damage to the system including ‘meltdown’ of the main panel. The work required to get the system up and running again was quickly assessed and carried out so as to minimise the period for which we were without alarm cover.
