These components are essential for the proper functioning of the fire alarm system and ensuring the safety of the facility and its occupants. The fire alarm control panel is the central hub that receives signals from the initiating agents and activates the notification appliances to alert people in case of a fire. The primary power source provides the necessary electrical power for the system, while the secondary power source acts as a backup in case of a power failure. The initiating agents detect the presence of fire or smoke, while the notification appliances include devices such as sirens, strobe lights, or speakers that emit audible and visual alerts. The building safely interfaces allow for the integration of the fire alarm system with other safety systems in the facility.
