Raising the alarm when a fire is discovered

Fire Alarm Roll Call Systems can be simple or complicated depending on the size of the building/s. The fire alarm activation points should be easily accessible and everyone should be well versed in how to activate them in the event a fire is discovered.

Contacting the emergency fire services

Some fire alarm systems automatically contact the Fire Brigade when they are activated, some do not, either way the Fire Services must be contacted by telephone as quickly as possible. There is usually a designated person to do this, for example the receptionist if you have one. When contacting the fire brigade by telephone give the following information if you are able to.

  • The name and address of the building.
  • Directions to the building if they ask.
  • If known, the type and size of the fire, are there people missing/injured, the type of material that is on fire.
