What is it? Well, it quite simply means that if your fire alarm system is triggered, a monitoring centre is notified immediately, and it’s dealt with from there.
Imagine if your company is based on a business park. A fire breaks out in the middle of the night. There are no passers-by to raise the alarm. Monitoring your fire alarm system makes sense really, doesn’t it?
Benefits of Fire System Monitoring
Many businesses don’t recover from the devastating effects of a fire. Sometimes the cost of recovery is just too much. Here’s a few reasons why monitoring works:
It’s monitored 24 hours a day, every day
You don’t have to rely on someone passing by to raise the alarm
Your premises stand more chance of surviving a fire
Work can continue if your premises aren’t badly damaged - helping save jobs
It’s easy to install – and low-cost
It might save you money on your insurance premiums
How Monitoring Works
It’s quite straightforward.
A fire takes hold in your business premises
The fire alarm is triggered as soon as it’s detected
The fire alarm system sends a signal via landline or phone network
The signal is received at a dedicated monitoring centre
The monitoring centre contacts both the fire brigade and nominated key holders for the site
The fire brigade arrives to tackle the fire (note: response is subject to local fire brigade policy)
