Scheduled Inspections & Testing

Routine inspections and testing form the backbone of fire alarm system maintenance. Set a regular schedule for comprehensive checks to ensure all components are functioning correctly.

This includes detectors, alarms, control panels, and communication devices. Regular testing helps identify issues before they compromise the system’s effectiveness.

Cleanliness is Key

Dust, dirt, and debris can hinder the performance of sensors and detectors. Regularly clean these components to ensure they remain sensitive to smoke and heat.

Keep the surrounding areas free from obstructions to facilitate unimpeded airflow to detectors.

Emergency Lighting Tests

Emergency lighting is crucial for facilitating safe evacuation during a fire emergency. Regularly test and inspect emergency lighting systems to ensure they activate correctly.

Replace bulbs and batteries as needed to maintain optimal illumination.

Conduct Regular Drills & Training

Practice makes perfect, even in the realm of fire safety. Conduct regular fire drills to test the responsiveness of your fire alarm system and familiarise occupants with evacuation procedures.

Use these drills as an opportunity to identify any shortcomings in the system.
