Fire Alarm Testing
If a fire breaks out at your premises and your fire alarms aren’t working efficiently you could put your staff, customers and visitors in danger. It is a legal requirement to have your fire alarms tested regularly. At ECMS we take fire alarm testing very seriously and we have an engineering team dedicated to dealing with fire risks. They are all trained to understand all fire alarm systems, taking the right steps to make sure your system works effectively.
Fire Alarm Compliancy
Over time, battery life deteriorates on fire alarms and sometimes they stop working because dirt has interfered with their mechanism. The ECMS fire alarm testing service makes sure that your system complies with the British Health & Safety Regulations Fire Safety Order 2005. Every business must have suitable fire alarm warning systems and detection in place that is regularly maintained by competent engineers. During maintenance your engineer should record any faults and rectify problems so all your fire alarm systems work properly. It’s also important to hold a fire drill once every year using your fire alarm and keep a note of the results as part of your evacuation plan in the event of fire.
Fully Recorded Inspections
Our fully trained engineers will visit your place of business and survey where your fire alarms are located. Then, they will inspect each one making sure it conforms to the standard and recommend replacement if necessary. Inspection includes mains panel, heat detectors, smoke detectors, batteries, break glass units and sirens. It’s always best to be prepared in case of emergency which is why we advise regular testing at least twice a year in line with the British Standard. Following fire alarm testing, we will provide you with a full standardised report so you know your business is safe and complies by law.
