These recommendations introduce the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) CFOA Guidance for the reduction of false alarms and unwanted fire signals, which explains the user’s obligations to conform to this document and highlights the inconsistent approach to application of the agreement by FRSs. Emphasis is given to the need to minimise unwanted fire alarm signals caused by premises false alarms, and how this may be carried out in practice.
