How often should I have my fire alarm system serviced?

The period between fire alarm service visits should be based upon your fire risk assessment. This takes into account the type of fire alarm system installed, the environment in which it operates and other factors that may affect the long term operation of the system.

The recommended period between successive inspection and servicing visits should not exceed six months.

In addition, you need to test your fire alarm on a weekly basis to ensure you comply with the requirements of BS5839.

What are the benefits of fire alarm maintenance?

There are many benefits of regular fire alarm inspection and maintenance to ensure you protect you, your employees, customers, visitors and premises. Having a fully functional fire detection and alarm system will give you an early warning signal in the event of fire, enabling safe and timely evacuation.

Regular maintenance of your fire alarm system can also benefit you by maximising component life and minimising false alarms.

What causes false alarms with fire alarm and detection systems?

Properly designed, installed and maintained fire detection and alarm systems don’t cause false alarms. It is the mismanagement of fire alarm systems 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 and properly maintained systems rarely suffer equipment malfunctions but it is estimated that false alarms cost the UK in excess of £1 billion a year.

In recent years, The Fire Industry Association (FIA) launched a campaign to cut false alarms, as part of ongoing attempts to highlight the costs associated with false alarms. For more information visit:

Please see the attached infographic produced by the Fire Industry Association for advice on minimising false alarms. It could help you cut false alarm costs and save your business money.
