Fire Log Book

The British Standards 5839 part 1, and its measures (in section 3) to limit false alarms, has led to changes in the way alarm activations should be recorded and thus a new design for Log Books and Certificates.  KRP's new Fire Log Book reflects all these requirements.  Below are a few reasons why you should keep a Log Book:

Certain premises are certified under the Fire Precautions Act 1971.  If your premises fall into this category then failure to keep a suitable Log Book up-to-date may be seen as a breach of the requirements of the certificate, which is a criminal offence.


If you ever have to claim for fire damage, you'll probably need to show that your fire safety systems were regularly checked. Your Fire Log Book demonstrates to your Insurance Company, the Fire Brigade and even a Court of Law that you had been effectively managing the fire safety on site. 


Keeping an up-to-date Log Book gives the full history of the equipment on site, which will also help  fire alarm/extinguisher engineers to trace and track down faults with the system.


It is a recommendation of the British Standards.
