Having a fire alarm installed in your home or business – office building, factory, whatever it might be – provides important peace of mind. However, simply having an alarm system installed is not enough to protect your family, yourself or your staff from the risk of fire.
Like any battery-powered equipment, fire alarm and emergency systems are vulnerable to faults in their power supply. A neglected battery running low on charge, or suffering some other fault could cut out at any time, leaving your emergency system without power when it is needed most.
