Building Safety: How To Reduce False Fire Alarms

Did you know that false fire alarms could increase the likelihood of injury and loss of life? Yes, this realization is a scary thought but there are ways to reduce false alarms. Read now to learn the basic principles you should pay attention to and follow to reduce the likelihood of false alarms.

The first way to reduce false alarms is to know how to operate your fire system. It is important to take time out to learn how to operate your fire system. Your professional fire system installer can help you learn about the program features and help you reduce the number of false alarms.

Next, take in account the best areas in your building to position your fire alarm equipment. For example positioning motion sensors above fireplaces and heat vents will definitely increase false alarms during the cold months. Your fire system provider can help you identify the best areas of your home or business to place fire alarms.

After this task is completed, ask your installer to check all equipment installed for proper function. Always inspect the workmanship and make sure no work is performed in a sloppy fashion.

Once this is completed ask about programming features that can be enabled on your fire system and make sure all electrical surges entering your home or business will not interfere with your fire system functions. Some electrical surges that could affect a fire system are electrical wiring and telephone wiring.

Last but not least, make sure you take in account pets and motion sensors. There is technology available for pet immunity that can prevent pets, such as dogs and cats, from activating false alarms.
