IDS Security News
All the latest security news and information, plus insights and updates from IDS Security Systems Ltd.

While the police and ambulance services equate for the majority of emergency call outs in the UK, the fire service is far from underused, with an incredible number of hazards attended throughout the year.

The sheer volume of fire-related emergency calls alone is proof that fires are a very real immediate danger to us all and not just something that affects other people.

As such, a working fire alarm is a vital piece of equipment for any property and efficient fire alarm maintenance to keep it in working order year-round is just as important.

Fire Statistics UK

According to the gov.uk website, England’s Fire & Rescue Services attended over 167,000 fires between April 2017 and March 2018.

Incredibly, those figures equate to just around 460 fires a day on average – a sobering statistic that shouldn’t be taken lightly.

Worse still, over 74k of these incidents were classified as “primary fires”, defined as any fire that occurs in a non-derelict building, vehicle or outdoor structure.

Of these, over 30k fires occurred in “dwellings” (i.e. houses, flats and caravans), while over 15.5k fires occurred in “other buildings” – including public venues like hotels, shops and restaurants – as well as places of work, such as offices, factories and warehouses.

Fire Protection System Design

Fire protection starts with taking the necessary precautions. Fire protection systems are incredibly important to how you safeguard your property from what could be a devastating event. Lately, there have been several high-profile stories about how disastrous fire can be to both the building and those unfortunate enough to be inside during. Stories like this remind us how vital a fire protection system design really is and how they can prevent the worst case scenario from taking place.

There isn't a 'one-size-fits-all' to fire protection which is why we work with you to suggest the best way to ensure fire safety at your property.

That's why at IDS we make it our priority to provide you with a fire alarm system that we can be sure is capable of making you safe. To learn more about our fire alarm systems, click here

Recent tragedies such as the Grenfell Tower fire have reminded the public of just how devastating fires can be. Not only do they destroy homes and possessions, the risk to human life is also very, very real. Fire alarms are important as they quickly alert everyone in the area that a fire has broken out. This alert allows everyone to evacuate the area and makes it far more likely that the fire will be extinguished before it gets out of control.

Our fire alarm systems are created to protect you and your property, and while we all hope you will never have to use them, they are an essential precaution that is always necessary no matter how unlikely the event of fire may seem to be.

Here at IDS, we design, install and maintain fire alarm systems to suit your property and circumstances. Our top-of-the-line technology gives you peace of mind that your property is well-protected in the event of a fire. We have a range of fire alarm systems available, and we will help you to select the one that will best protect yourself, your premises, and those around you. To learn more about our fire protection services, please click here.

We also offer a 24hr fire alarm monitoring service that provides further protection if a fire occurs. Monitoring allows for the quickest possible response to the location of the fire and rapid correspondence with emergency services.

If you’re still wondering why fire alarms are important, you should remember that it is never a risk you should be willing to take. Don’t leave your property’s protection up to chance - invest in a reliable fire detection system and be reassured that you have taken all the appropriate safety measures.
