Fire Alarm System Maintenance
The user must constantly test the fire protection system to ensure that it works smoothly without problems. Unfortunately, like other disasters, we do not know precisely when they will occur. That is why we must keep our systems and equipment, including our alarms, always in working order.
By performing routine tests, we can determine if there is a fault in the system. For example, we must examine whether the system’s connection to the alarm receiving centre is working smoothly, if the various manual call points are in working order, etc.
A competent person with appropriate certification (third party certificated) must inspect and service your fire alarm system. This person needs to check things such as:
- Control panel functions
- Fire alarm devices
- If the alarm signals are reaching the alarm receiving centre
- check if the standby power supply capacity is appropriate
- if there are outstanding defects in the system or batteries
- If there are fault indicators and circuits, the competent person will examine them and give you instructions on how to solve this problem
