Fire systems are made of different components, but they need to be maintained as an integrated whole. While all of the components may work separately they may not work together, and most importantly they may not work in the event of an actual fire.
Maintenance is moving from a prescriptive regime to a performance one. That means that newer more effective equipment may save time and money in maintenance by being programmed to self-report failure or maintenance problems via email or fax.
Under the law you are currently required to:
- have components regularly serviced;
- have a training and evacuation plan (training must be carried out only by recognised training organisations);
- keep records of fire instruction;
- report annually on servicing of equipment
