Fire Alarms & False Alarms

Fire fighters throughout the UK are frequently called to attend Fire incidents resulting from Fire Alarms generated by Fire detection and suppression systems, which are usually installed within commercial premises and are often monitored remotely.

The cost of these unwanted false Fire Alarm signals to both businesses and Fire and Rescue Services is estimated to be around £1billion per year.

Assistant Fire Chief Officer (ACO) Lewis Ramsay, the SFRS Director of Prevention and Protection, said: “Unwanted false Fire Alarm signals are a significant issue for Fire and Rescue Services so it’s important we join with our partners to see them reduced.
