It is now essential that all buildings with a fire alarm system have up to date, accurate Fire Alarm Zone Plans. (BS5839-1:2017)

Do I need a Fire Alarm Zone Plan?

The simple answer is YES!

If your local fire service visited your property for an inspection and you didn’t have a fire alarm zone plan located on, or near, your fire alarm control and repeater panels, you’d be flagged up for neglecting fire safety standards.

This would be considered a non-conformance against the British Standard for design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire alarm systems in non-domestic premises.

What is a Fire Alarm Zone Plan?

A Fire Alarm Zone Plan is a layout of your building highlighting the areas of fire detection zones ie. where fire alarms are housed. The main purpose of a zone plan is to be able to immediately identify where any potential fire may have occurred.

A  Zone Plan shows the layout of the building and clearly highlights the separate fire alarm zones to help evacuations in an emergency situation.

Your Fire Alarm Zone Plan MUST  include:

  • Building name and floors;
  • Escape route and final exits;
  • Circulation areas;
  • Alarm panel and repeater location (one plan per location required); and
  • Correctly oriented “You Are Here”.
