The BAFE SP207 scheme, developed in conjunction with the fire safety industry and the Fire and Rescue Service, sets an industry standard for the design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance of evacuation alert systems. Organisations that meet the scheme’s criteria become third party certificated and BAFE Registered. The scheme was developed as a result of new consultations into high rise buildings, which demonstrate the necessity of providing safe and compliant evac-alert systems in times of emergency.
Adam Norris, Sales Director for Fire & Security within Johnson Controls commented: “It is an honour to be the first national BAFE SP207 accredited evacuation alert specialist, and our fully qualified engineers are already working on some exciting new install projects. This accreditation solidifies our position as a trusted fire safety partner for our clients and marks a vital step in the industry to ensure that buildings are safe for all. Fire safety systems are the one piece of equipment you hope you never have to use, but ensuring that yours is compliant, and meets new standards like BAFE SP207, can really save lives.”
