Fire Alarm Monitoring

Fast and reliable response

Fire alarms inform the occupants of a building that there is an incident so they can escape safely. However, according to the Fire Brigade, 47% of fires occur between 16:00 and 22:00, so a significant proportion of incidents happen when buildings are unoccupied without someone available to raise the alarm. 
In addition, it is known that 60% of businesses that suffer a significant fire never recover. Whether this is due to loss of manufacturing capability or stock, the interruption to the business causes the most harm. 
The fire alarm monitoring service provided by Chubb gives you the confidence that your premise is protected when you need it most. Fire alarm monitoring doesn’t rely on people in the building or passersby to raise the alarm. A signal is sent to our dedicated monitoring centre operators, who alert the fire services. 
Without fire alarm monitoring, a standard alarm rings out while fire spreads undeterred.
If a fire alarm rings and no one hears it, the effects of a fire can be devasting, potentially causing an irreversible impact on a business, such as loss of revenue and customers, cash flow restrictions, staff attrition, and loss of operational data held on-site.
Why have fire alarm monitoring 
In the event of a fire, seconds count and could be the difference between loss or survival. That’s why fire alarm monitoring is vital in protecting your business continuity and assets.
The cost of a monitored fire alarm system is small compared with the total loss of your business. A monitored fire alarm ensures rapid response to a fire alarm activation, maintains business continuity, and protects data and assets.

In the event of a fire, the alarm sounds, and a digital signal is sent automatically to our ARC within seconds, enabling our operators to inform you there is an incident at your premises and call the fire services. The rapid deployment of the fire services enables them to investigate the cause of the alarm, and in the unlikely event of a fire, they will control and contain it.
