Fire Detection

Fire Detection

No matter what size vessel you are on, there are few things worse than a fire on board. Fire detection systems are a vital part of the firefighting systems on most vessels.

Fire detectors are designed to provide a visible and audible alarm on the vessel to indicate the location of a fire. The detectors throughout the ship are wired to a fire control panel that provides visual and auditory alerts and possibly alarms in other parts of the vessel as well.

An effective fire safety strategy is a fundamental part of any vessel’s safety planning and an integral part of that strategy is an effective fire detection and alarm system. Early, reliable detection of all fire types is critical to secure the survival of your crew and vessel in a fire situation.
