The primary function of a fire detection and fire alarm system is to give an early warning of fire in a building or premises in order to ensure the safety of the occupants by alerting them of the danger of a fire therefore increasing the time available to escape to safety.
The secondary function is to reduce the loss of, or damage to, property by ensuring the early detection and increasing the possibility of extinguishing the fire before it takes control.
Action24 Fire Alarm Systems
A conventional fire alarm system is suitable for small and medium sized business premises. With this system we install detectors around the premises. Upon triggering into our monitoring centre we can see the area of activation and call emergency services and keyholders as appropriate.
Addressable fire alarm systems are a more advanced type of fire alarm system which give precise zone activation details on the control panel. Upon activation these details are presented to our ARC operators and we can contact emergency services and keyholders as required.
Wireless fire alarm systems are self-contained and self-powered with dual battery power supply. These systems are scalable and configurable from standalone single loop systems to multi-building networks. They also adapt and interlink with other addressable or conventional fire alarm systems.
All our fire alarm systems in Ireland are designed, installed, commissioned and maintained to I.S. 3218:2013+A1:2019

Have a plan
It’s good practice to have an evacuation plan and to practice fire drills on a regular basis. Effective fire drills are an essential element of any fire management system. The drills should be designed and tested to ensure that all employees and visitors can safely, quickly and efficiently evacuate a building where and when an emergency arises. Fire drills should typically be run twice a year and special measures should be incorporated into your drills where shift workers are employed.
