Fire Alarm Maintenance
British standards relating to the installation and maintenance of fire alarms (BS5839) were revised in 2005 as follows:
- The responsibility for alarms doesn’t just rest with system designers, but businesses are also required to ensure alarms on their premises are serviced and maintained at least every 6 months
- Businesses are required to have a written fire alarm maintenance contract
- A businesses’ fire alarm needs to be tested daily, weekly, quarterly and annually
- Results of the testing and any false alarms need to be recorded in your fire alarm log book
UK Electrical will train you and your staff how to use and test the fire alarm on a daily and weekly basis and we will supply you with a log book and show you how to fill it in.
We will carry out quarterly, 6 monthly and annual testing and maintenance on your fire alarm system and make sure that you meet your legal obligations.
