Fires today are the most common type of hazards when living in built up areas. Fires can start in any building whether they are residential, schools, shopping centers or industrial units. This is why it is very important to have an effective fire suppression system in place as even a small spark can cause a devastating fire.

One of the most effective ways to deal with a fire is to have a fire suppression System installed in your building. A fire suppression system basically comprises both fire detection and fire protection instruments which help in dealing with both the before-and-after effects of a fire. There are various types of fire suppression systems available today, starting with a Fire Alarm system.

A Fire Alarm System is designed to detect a fire by monitoring environmental changes like changes in temperature and combustion detection in a room. These can be either automatic, manually activated or both.
Automatic fire alarm systems are intended to raise an alarm by sounding a loud ring to evacuate the building in the event of a fire, and to prepare to control the spread of the fire. They automatically detect any changes in the immediate environment like rise in temperature and heat, presence of smoke or flame in the room, and detection of presence of carbon monoxide.

Manual alarms have devices like a break glass station, or button. They are usually located near exits and easy-to-spot places to raise an alarm as early as possible to ensure rapid evacuation.
Fire Alarm systems have come a long way in the past century since their invention in 1902 and now have innovative and interactive devices for enhanced fire detection and sounding an early alert and even issuing instructions for evacuation. They may consist of audio or visual equipment with a distinct tone or speakers to convey live or pre-recorded instructions to the occupants of a building. In the United States, the alarm evacuation signals generally consist of a standardized temporal code 3 audible tone, with visual notification in all public and common use areas. Fire emergency signals are intended to be distinct and understandable to avoid confusion with other signals. Audio equipment includes Emergency Voice Alarm Communications (EVAC). High reliability speakers are used to notify the occupants of the need for action via live or pre recorded messages in a number of languages.

A fire alarm may consist of the following components:

  • A Control Panel which is the hub of the system and monitors inputs, controls outputs and relays information.
  • A primary Power supply or the non-switched 120 or 240 Volt Alternating Current source supplied from a commercial power utility.

The secondary (backup) Power supply used to supply energy in the event of a primary power failure. Initiating devices which act as input to the alarm control unit. They include pull stations or smoke detectors. Notification appliances which use energy supplied from the fire alarm system or other stored energy source, to inform of the need to take action. This is done by means of a flashing light, strobe light, electromechanical horn, speaker, or a combination of these devices.

Fire suppression systems are clearly a thing that cannot be ignored.
