Euralarm reveals latest research on false alarms

Zug, Switzerland

False alarms from fire detection and fire alarm systems has been a topic that Euralarm's Technical Group on False Alarm has been working on since 2013 and, which has resulted in the publishing of a book covering a 3-year study of the risk-based understanding of the topic in various European countries.  The group is currently in its final stages of publishing an update of the study, which will be presented in an online webinar next month.

Based on the carefully examined facts and statistics the study also contains recommendations and strategies for false alarm reduction.

One of the recommendations was to integrate the topic of false alarms into fire protection and fire alarm strategies as well as how to handle false alarms as an active part of the management of a site. However, the false alarm topic continues to accompany the fire safety industry. Although much has been achieved the statistics show that there is a sizable potential for continuing improvement. Therefore, the Fire Section of Euralarm has agreed to continue its study.

Prior to the update of the book, the TG FAS has also released a Fact Sheet entitled, 'Increase fire safety by understanding false alarms' with practical measures to avoid false alarms.

The TG FAS will conduct a free webinar on the topic of False Alarms. Both the study and the Fact sheet will be on the webinar programme which will begin at 3pm on December 16th, 2021
