Euralarm Member FIA published guide on how to cut the cost of false alarms

The UK Fire Industry Association, a long-standing Euralarm Member, has published a guide on how to cut false alarm costs.

The newly published FIA guide on false alarms is a reminder that most fire alarm and detection systems don’t cause false alarms: it’s the mismanagement of them that does and this is where they can really cost you money due to:

  •     Lost production
  •     Disruption due to staff evacuation
  •     Unnecessary release of retained firefighters
  •     Possible future charging for attendance by fire and rescue services
  •     Increased insurance premiums

Modern properly maintained systems rarely suffer equipment malfunctions but it is estimated that false alarms cost the UK in excess of £1 billion a year. 

Euralarm is actively looking at this issue from a European perspective and will soon publish a study on the matter.
