Make sure your fire system works as it should 

If you aren’t conducting regular fire system maintenance in your building you can’t be confident that it will be reliable in the event of an emergency. 
 
Like all other equipment, fire systems can degrade over time and their performance can also be affected by dirt, dust or damage. 
 
If you have made structural changes to your building your fire alarms could have been affected by debris, vibration or accidents. 
 
Temperature, humidity, and voltage fluctuations can all affect your system which can lead to false alarms. The older your system, the more maintenance it is likely to need. 
 
Inspection, testing and maintenance will give you the reassurance you need that your fire system works as it should. 

Fire system maintenance 

A regular programme of maintenance will help to keep your fire safety system running reliably and extend its useful life. Your routine maintenance should include daily checks and a record of any faults and failures, along with an action plan to fix them. 
 
At least one detector should be tested each week and if you have multiple zones, one in each zone should be tested. Automatic release of fire doors should also be tested weekly. 
 
Batteries and connections along with your alarm functions, indicators and audible alarms should be tested every quarter and replacements installed if needed. 
 
Every year a competent person should review your system to confirm that everything is operating properly. If any damage or failures are discovered then repairs and replacements will be needed
