If you don’t have a fire alarm for your home then you could be in trouble. It’s important you have fire alarms in Cardiff or anywhere else for that matter. Fire alarms are an early detection system for fires. I know it probably doesn’t sound that important given that fires are pretty easy to spot by themselves but you’d be surprised how many start when people are quietly asleep at home in bed.
Risk Assessment for Fires
The first step to determining what kind of fire alarms system you’re going to need is to have a fire risk assessment done on your home or business. These little investigations can usually be carried out by your alarm company, but if that isn’t the case then there are a number of other private and professional options to be had. Your local fire services might also be able to do a risk assessment. Once your risk has been determined you’re going to want to speak with local alarm companies to ensure you get the latest and most up to date fire alarms on the market. One can never be too safe when it comes to protecting the well-being of co-workers or loved ones.
Servicing your Fire Alarm System
Depending on how large your building is or how many people live or work on the premises typically determines how often you should have proper servicing. If you live in a standard home then you’re only going to need to make sure everything is working fine just twice a year but if you live in a facility that houses 10 or more people you should probably have servicing done every 3 months.
If you happen to own a business then you can also have servicing done every 6 months unless you employ more than 10 people. In which case, you’re going to need to have servicing done every 3 months. Just keep in mind that local laws state that this servicing is required.
Don’t wait until the last minute to get a new fire alarm system. They are of vital importance to safety and they can save lives. If you don’t think you need a new fire alarm system then at the very least have some qualified professionals come out and take a look at what you do have. They might just need to perform some maintenance or they may have some suggestions to make your alarm system better.
