Integrated Fire Alarm Solutions for High Rise Residential Buildings

Seminar C-TEC

About the CPD course

Guidance on fire alarms for purpose-built high rise residential buildings says the likelihood of false alarms means communal fire systems are a bad idea. However; this means Fire & Rescue Service response may be unnecessarily delayed giving time for a fire to spread. This seminar explores an alternative approach based on the use of false alarm resistant fire detectors in flats connected to a communal system via ‘Hush Buttons’ that can be operated whilst standing at floor level. This can minimise the chance of false alarms but ensure the emergency services are called promptly if there is a real fire; which is especially important for disabled residents.
