Dependent Service Users
The purpose of the fire alarm system within a care home setting, and where progressive horizontal evacuation is adopted, is to alert staff of the risk of fire.

In the instance where service users can understand the fire alarm signal, but due to their medication or treatment plan, are unable to evacuate without assistance from staff, serious consideration should be made into how best to alert and evacuate those within your individual care home setting.

Very High Dependancy Users
For those with very high dependency needs, stabilising their living environment is vital. It is essential therefore to give significant consideration to any measure installed which may have a detrimental effect on their current condition. Such examples include sudden loud noises which could easily cause distress and panic amongst high dependency service users within a residential care home.

With over 25 years as East Sussex's leading care home fire alarm specialists, BeSure Fire and Security understand the need for the audibility of a fire alarm to adhere to BS 5839-1. With this in mind, our dedicated team of friendly engineers are on hand to ensure your fire alarm system functions as it should, protecting what matters the most.

Where audible alarms are required, each alarm device should be careful situated throughout the premises to warn staff of the threat of fire without unnecessary disturbance to the service users. Additionally, it is advisable to opt for more quieter sounders, rather than a few very louder sounders to reduce distress further. If your care home is in East Sussex and you have any questions regarding what your premises requires, do not hesitate to get in touch, we'll be delighted to help organise your fire alarm system requirements.

Mental Heath Service Users
Acknowledging that service users with mental health issues require additional assistance, fire alarm systems serving areas in which they occupy need to be configured in a suitable manner to serve the individual needs of the service user profile.

In circumstances where high sound pressure levels are present, mental health service users present a risk of reacting significantly in a manner which may hinder an evacuation. As such, the design of a fire alarm within a care home should take account of the nature and ability of the service users within the premises and mitigates the potential for unpredictable reaction.

In such instances, the provision of alarm devices capable of producing musical output to reduce distress should be self-contained with a pre-recorded message, allowing for the broadcast of a coded alarm to alert staff members with the most minimal disturbance to mental health service users.

Visual Alarm Devices
In some healthcare settings such as residential care homes, visual alarm devices may be more suitable than audible fire alarms, especially in high dependency areas. In some settings, it may even be beneficial to incorporate both voice alarm systems alongside audible systems, so long as both are fully compliant with the current British legislation, BS 5839-8.

If you have any questions or concerns in regards to how to keep your East Sussex care home protected and compliant with all current legislation, BeSure Fire and Security are here to help. Get in touch today and speak to one of our experienced team of fire alarm experts.
