    What is a fire alarm system?

    A fire alarm system is a building wide security system. Designed to alert occupants to the presence of a fire in the building or vicinity, it has a number of useful benefits (more on this later).

    While there are several different types of fire alarm systems available, they all carry out the same job, and they all comprise a number of devices installed throughout the building. The number of devices needed can vary depending on the system used, as can how accurately they’re able to pinpoint the location of a fire.

    Can any Electrician Install Fire Alarms?

    Legally speaking, anyone who can be considered “competent” can install fire alarms. A competent person is considered to be anyone who has relevant training or experience and is aware of any risks and dangers. So yes, any electrician will be able to install fire alarms for you.

    If you’re looking at installing a whole new fire alarm system though, you’ll need to find someone with slightly more expertise. While many electricians will come under this bracket, some might not. To be qualified, they must have a number of certificates such as the Installation certificate and Design certificate.

    Why do I need to get Fire Alarms Installed?

    There are many reasons why you should get fire alarms installed in your building or business. Chief among these reasons is that, for virtually any building which isn’t a small privately owned home, it’s a legal requirement to have a sufficient fire alarm system.

    But besides this, there are plenty of reasons why you should want a fire alarm system installed anyway. These include:

    • Protecting occupants – having a fire alarm system gives any occupants a much higher chance of escaping injury, or worse, as a result of a fire.
    • Protecting property – by being alerted to the presence of a fire quickly, you (or the fire services) have the best chance possible to tackle the fire before it gets out of control and damages your property.
    • Lower insurance – any steps that you can take to protect yourself against the risks of a fire are likely to lower your insurance costs.

    What are the penalties for not having a fire alarm system?

    If you’re a business or property owner who comes under the category of being legally required to install a fire system, you could face repercussions if you fail to do so. First, you’ll probably receive a notice which will tell you how you’re not complying with the law, and what steps you need to take. If you still don’t comply, you’re likely to receive a fine. In worst case scenarios, such as if someone is hurt as a result of your negligence, you could even face prison time.

    Do I need a fire alarm system?

    For most businesses and buildings that aren’t small privately owned properties, it’s likely that you’ll be legally required to have a fire alarm system. If you’re unsure though, carry out a fire risk assessment which will help you decide if you need one or not. If you need help doing this, or you’re still unsure, consult a professional.
