Expert Advice

During the installation of your fire alarms, you have the opportunity to ask any fire safety questions you may have. The fire and security experts completing the installation can offer advice and address any concerns you have.

They should also be able to offer you expert advice on which fire alarm to choose. With these systems, it isn’t one fits all. For example, large businesses based in tall buildings would require a more advanced system than a small family home. Therefore, when enquiring about a fire alarm, they should have multiple fire alarms to choose from.


Quality Service

With the importance of fire safety, you can expect a high quality service during the entire process. Upon your enquiry, a knowledgeable team should be available to advise you on the right alarm for your property. This will take into considerations your needs, occupancy size and training requirements to find a fire alarm suitable.

It is also helpful to ask if they offer a 24 hour emergency call out service throughout the year. If they do, then you can feel reassured of help with broken alarms or after a fire has broken out.



Once your fire alarm is installed, your fire and security expert should demonstrate how to use your new system. This is your time to ask any questions, so you can feel fully confident in your fire evacuation routine.

During the demonstration they should inform you of how to routinely check your fire alarm is still working. They will also educate you on how to use the different functions and how to identify technical issues.
