Healthcare

The reliability of a suitable fire detection and alarm system within a healthcare facility is paramount as its primary function is to protect life in a building with high sleeping risk and vulnerable people.

 
Unlike most buildings where occupants are of sound mind and body, this is often not the case in a healthcare facility. Its occupants can be less mobile, could be sleeping and many will need help if an evacuation is needed. These factors should be taken into account when designing the fire system.
 
Disruption from false alarms can be stressful to patients and cause panic. It is vital that the chosen fire system provides effective cover and performs reliably, as well as giving the best protection against false alarms. It should give the maximum possible warning in the event of a fire event, given the additional difficulties in evacuating patients to safety.
