Raising the Fire Alarm during Maintenance

Gary Ibbotson

Recommended Posts

You would have to find a way of communicating with the fire marshals or nominated persons who would initiate the evacuation in their designated area by maybe radio or even mobile smart phone. Maybe in small premises word of mouth would be satisfactory. During the maintenance the engineer maybe able to still monitor the detectors and activate the sounders manually.

I think this query would be better dealt with by http://firealarmengineers.com/forum/index.php I am sure most engineers will have had such a problem during their career.

HI Tom,

Thanks for your reply regrettably I work on a Site which doesn't allow any radio's, phone's or Bluetooth devices. I think we will need to include on induction and annual Fire Fighting Training that individuals on finding a fire during maintenance raise the alarm and continue to raise the alarm until the reception announces an evacuation. It was more hope that someone had a Gem of information that might help.

Ill try the link you suggested.

Thanks again,
