Servicing & Maintenance
Fire equipment is designed to detect, suppress, or warn others about a potential fire, as well as to ensure that all occupants are able to evacuate a building in a safe and timely manner. However, without regular maintenance and servicing your fire equipment might not be doing its job, and in the case of an actual emergency may prove useless, and risk the lives of those inside.

Most equipment is required to be serviced every 6 months, and Critical Fire Protection & Training can inform you at each interval or automatically service the equipment to take this stress away and ensure you are compliant with all national standards.

Sprinklers and Fire Pumps are designed to first activate when a fire is detected, and then control the fire until the responding services arrive. With regular maintenance your business can feel confident that it protected by an effective first line of...
