Fire Alarms and Systems
Fire alarms for churches and security are important considerations for any church building. Ensuring you have modern systems for a fast and reliable response is essential for the safety of your staff, volunteers, congregation and property. We work with many churches across the UK specialising in church roof protection, wireless & hard-wired fire alarm systems, CCTV and security systems to give you peace of mind.
Our highly trained engineers work to the UK’s British Standards and BAFE industry compliance to supply and maintain your systems.
SS Systems carefully manage and agree with you throughout the project, whether it is a new install, upgrading, working along side or maintaining your existing systems.
At SS Systems we are technically able to install wireless or hard wired fire alarm systems, and offer free surveys so that we can ensure your systems adhere to British Standard regulation, and suit your individual requirements.

Our Guide to Fire Alarms for Churches
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 stipulates that those responsible for public buildings, including churches, must comply with fire regulations. In this brief guide, we will talk you through the legislation and how SS Systems can help you comply.
Identify a responsible person
If you are a landlord or own/are responsible for premises, then the organisation must appoint a person who is responsible for planning and implementing fire precautions.
Undertake a risk assessment
It’s important to perform a regular risk assessment of the premises and any existing systems you have already in the building. You will need to check for potential fire hazards, identify any risk to personnel, evaluate and reduce risks, record the findings and ensure personnel are sufficiently trained and document your findings. For a more in depth guide, click here to see the government’s guidance.
Check your Insurance documentation
Your insurance company may stipulate what type of fire and security systems you must have in order to comply with your policy, so make sure you read the small print each year. SS Systems is on the list of accredited suppliers at Eccleciastical Insurance Group so we know how important this can be for our clients.
Once you’ve done the risk assessment, checked your insurance documents and existing systems, you may identify a number of risks to your building. At this stage, it’s good to bring in a more experienced person or company to advise you on exactly what you need to do in order to both comply with legislation and protect your property and its users.
