In order to protect your home or business from the risk of fire, you're going to need to install an effective fire alarm system.

Smoke alarms

First of all, we need to understand that a fire alarm system isn't complete without a smoke alarm. A smoke alarm is a key part of a fire alarm system - it is the sensor that first detects the possibility of a fire in your home or business through increased levels of smoke. This tiny device, packed with electronics and small amounts of radioactive material, is responsible for reducing the number of fire deaths by half since its widespread adoption in commercial and domestic settings.

The Regulatory Reform Order, or RRO, is the UK's legislative document about fire alarms operation and installation.

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.
