Fire Alarm Servicing
BS 5839 states that all the detectors, call points, panels, and circuits must be tested every six months by a competent person with specialist knowledge of fire alarm systems and smoke detectors.
It’s really important to keep your fire alarm system properly maintained – if it’s not looked after properly, it might fail to warn of a fire.
A regular maintenance schedule and effective local management will ensure the alarm can do its job.
You should consider your fire alarm system maintenance to be an important part of your fire risk assessment which is generally required under fire safety law. It will also play a role in your emergency plan.
