Fire alarm checks
Book a fire alarm check with JLA Fire and ensure your system is safe, efficient and compliant.
Choose JLA fire alarm inspections for complete peace of mind
We can carry out a comprehensive check of your full alarm system, from your control panel units and call points to your sensors, sounders and warning lights where installed – and service them as required too. Following our inspection, you’ll receive a fire alarm check record sheet for documented proof that your business is up-to-date with fire alarm service intervals.
Commercial fire alarm systems should be checked and maintained regularly by a ‘competent person’ in order to meet the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 – while BS5839 states that fire alarm systems must be inspected at least twice a year.
Closed due to Coronavirus?
During lockdowns and periods of restricted opening, your fire safety systems may not have been tested and properly maintained. We can check and service your alarm control panel units, call points and other parts of your system to bring everything back up-to-date and ensure you’re ready to welcome staff and customers back onto your premises.

How often should a fire alarm be serviced?
British Standard BS5839 states that fire alarm systems must be inspected at least twice a year.
Due to Coronavirus lockdowns and disruption, we recommend more regular checks currently.
