Having a working fire alarm system on your property, whether a domestic or commercial premises, is very important. Preventing fire is always better than trying to stop it in its early stages, so having a fire alarm system fitted is a way of preventing any fire from even starting.
There are many advantages to having a fire alarm fitted on your property. Of course, safety is going to be one of the most important reasons why you should have a fire alarm in your house or business premises.
The smoke detector on your property will be able to alert you to a fire or, rather, the possibility of a fire starting. This allows you to minimise the potential damage before anything is burnt. You may notice that whilst you are cooking dinner, the kitchen fire alarm will go off if you have a lot of smoke in the room. Despite their not being an actual fire on the premises, the smoke detector can alert you to the potential hazards of the smoke and the possibility that it could end up as a fire if left unattended.
If you are not present when a fire alarm goes off, it can alert neighbours to the fact that there may be a fire in your property. The neighbours are therefore allowed to act and defend your property on your behalf.
Having a working fire alarm also allows you to add value to your property. Buyers of premises and domestic properties will feel secure with their purchase if they know that a working and well maintained fire alarm system is in place.
Having a working fire alarm on a business premises allows you and your staff to feel safe and secure whilst at work. It is your moral and legal obligation as an employer to ensure that your fire alarm is working and regularly checked. Having fully serviced fire extinguishers is also a vital part of your fire protection duties.
