My business is temporarily closed due to the lockdown. Do I still need to have my fire alarm service visit?

Has your business been temporarily closed due to the second national lockdown? If so, you’re probably juggling a lot of things right now. Whether you’re managing furlough or taking your business online, it could be easy to forget the routine requirements, like fire alarm servicing. We’re doing our absolute best to support our customers and clients through this time. Our surveyors, engineers and admin team are busily working to keep your systems protecting your business. Keybury Fire and Security Systems can at least provide some peace of mind, with fire alarm maintenance to NSI Gold standard, BAFE approved and BS5839 compliant.

Even where a building is unoccupied, the requirement for maintenance of fire protection systems remains. With this in mind, we are continuing to provide routine servicing of fire alarms for our customers.  As the responsible person, you must ensure you fulfil their fire safety obligations as set out in the UK Fire Safety Order.

We are continuing to service fire alarms and make sure that they are working properly. This in turn helps to reduce potential strain on emergency services at this time. James Brokenshire, Minister of State for Security at the Home Office, has designated security & fire personnel as key workers, enabling us to continue with the vitally important routine servicing of your fire alarm, even during lockdown. You can find out how we’re continuing to keep local businesses safe by reading our COVID update here.

BAFE continue to emphasise the importance that fire safety legislation across the whole of the UK continues to be enforced and should be upheld despite the current situation.
