Fire Alarms during COVID-19 pandemic

We understand that it is a difficult time for so many people and businesses. SS Systems remains open for business as usual and continues to provide maintenance visits and call out services to its customers.

Our engineers have been issued with a full range of PPE including masks, hand sanitiser and gloves and are maintaining the 2 metre social distancing policy. We take our engineers safety seriously and want to also reassure our customers that we are doing all we can to keep everyone safe.

During this time when fewer people are working or in buildings, it’s perhaps even more crucial that the fire alarm system is maintained and able to adequately protect people and property. Our guidance would be for business owners to check with their insurance company to establish any implications of having buildings left vacant, and to check with their fire alarm provider if they’re worried about the functionality of the system.
