A fire alarm is an essential arsenal in modern buildings security systems. The device emits a signal in the form of siren or buzzer, as an alert to the people about a fire in their building. As fire is the most dangerous threat to the structure of the building, it is important to prevent it at all costs. A fire alarm system can be an invaluable asset in a scenario where the building catches fire.
Here are various benefits of a basic fire alarm system that help keep your building safe from fire attacks:
Protection from Arson and Riots
Riots can impact you and your loved ones anytime. There is a damage of property during violent processions and riots. Just a single matchstick can burn the entire building down. The best way to avoid such perilous situations is to use a fire alarm system. With a whiff of fire or smoke, it can alert the residents and save hundreds of lives. The recent fire tragedy in London that killed nearly 79 individuals is an example why a good fire alarm system is a must-have for every construction.
Early Warning System
Fire alarm systems are equipped with early warning systems. So even with a minor amount of smoke, it triggers an alarm. It ensures faster response to distress and more time for evacuation and rescue. Today’s hi-tech systems also shut off false detection with smart integration through mobile apps allowing you to monitor the fire situation remotely and respond accordingly.
Faster Evacuation and Rescue
• It increases evacuation time for building occupants well before the fire spreads out of control
• Emergency medical help can be immediately sent out to those in need
• Fire department personnel can reach ahead of time and help people to exit the building safely
A fire alarm system can deliver great results in a single home, a bungalow or an apartment of flats. The system either connects with a monitoring station or has a direct connection with a fire brigade. This makes response swifter and drives better quality of fire rescue operations. Also, if the systems of all nearby buildings are combined in a hub, one alarm can trigger off alerts to nearby buildings preventing large- scale damage by the rapid spread of fire.
Easy To Place and Install
Modern fire alarms provide you with the flexibility to place them in your area of choice. As it is advisable not to put these systems near the bathroom, most people prefer placing it near the shared hallways or a bedroom that is closed off from other areas.
Total Value for Money
Many housing societies cite lack of funds as a reason for not going for a fire alarm system. But when tragedy strikes, no cost can be placed on human lives especially if they are family members. Considering the immense value they provide in protecting your family and your assets, a fire alarm system is a must- buy for all apartments, homes, and work places.
