Fire Response

Fire Alarm Systems can be connected to an alarm receiving centre (ARC) to provide keyholder and on some systems obtain Fire Brigade Response. Argus Fire and Security currently install and maintain many of these systems across the UK, all our work is carried out in conjunction with the Fire Reform Order 2005 and the new British Standard BS5839:2017. Older systems would conform to the previous standards BS5839:2013/2002, and in some cases BS5839:1998. Argus expect in the future all companies working on fire alarms will need to be approved by an accredited organisation such as the NSI. Argus successfully achieved BAFE approval via the NSI in 2015.

Not all Fire Authorities will provide immediate brigade response, many brigades across the UK (including Merseyside) will only guarantee to respond to a confirmed Fire Alarm Activation. A confirmed fire activation is currently only achieved by two separate forms of notification.



“Argus installed my new police response security alarm in April 2016. After bad experiences with other contractors, I was anxious to say the least, the work was completed with no mess in a timely manor and I am very pleased with my new system. Thank you Argus for such a professional service from start to end, I will certainly recommend you in the future.”
