A fire alarm system notifies us of an emergency, to take action to protect ourselves, our employees, and the general public.
Fire detection systems identify fire early when there is still enough time for inhabitants to safely evacuate. Control actions begin while the fire is still minor, early detection helps to reduce property loss and operational disruption. Fire alarm systems transmit information about the location of the fire to emergency responders, speeding up the firefighting procedure.
Sounders go off to warn those within the building that there may be a fire. The fire alarm system could include a remote signal system. It would then notify the fire department via a central station.
