Fire Alarm Testing in London
To safeguard the safety of relevant persons, the responsible person must ensure that—
(a)the premises are, to the extent that it is appropriate, equipped with appropriate fire-fighting equipment and with fire detectors and alarms.
A working fire alarm system should give enough warning to save lives and give fire fighters enough time to limit property damage.
