What is it?

An automatic fire alarm system is designed to detect the unwanted presence of fire by monitoring environmental changes associated with combustion. In general, a fire alarm system is classified as either automatically actuated, manually actuated, or both. Automatic fire alarm systems are intended to notify the building occupants to evacuate in the event of a fire or other emergency. The event can also be reported to an off-premises location in order to summons emergency services to control the spread of fire and smoke. The three components to this standard L category systems for Life Protection P category systems for Property Protection M category systems for Manual Operation

Who needs it?

The need for a fire alarm system in any specific building will normally be determined by the authority responsible for enforcing fire safety legislation in that building and/or by a fire risk assessment carried out by the owner, landlord, occupier(s) or employer(s), as appropriate. In general, it is appropriate to install some form of fire alarm system in virtually all buildings, other than very small premises that are relatively open-planned so that occupants, who will be able to warn others by word of mouth, will quickly detect any fire or simple mechanical devices such as hand- operated bells.
