Fire Safety and Evacuation
Residential fire is a leading cause of accidental death. Most
fire related deaths occur at night when occupants suffocate in
their sleep from smoke and toxic gases, rather than from
burns. To help reduce this risk, the following program should
be implemented.
1. Minimize fire hazards. Smoking in bed, cleaning with
flammable liquids such as gasoline, leaving children
home alone, and using unsafe holiday decorations are
some of the common causes of household fire.
2. Install a fire alarm system. The primary purpose of this
system is to protect lives by giving the earliest possible
warning of danger.
3. A smoke detector (indicated in the figures by an inverted
“S” in a circle) should be provided to detect smoke in
each sleeping area in a home.
Bosch Security Systems, Inc. | 8/06 | F01U011793B
Practice an escape plan. Because there can be very little
time between detection of a fire and the time it becomes
deadly, it is important that every member of the family
understand how to quickly evacuate according to the
plan.

Fire System | User’s Guide | Fire Safety and Evacuation
Fire Safety and Evacuation (continued)
Plan both primary and alternate escape routes. Since
stairwells and hallways can be blocked during a fire, exiting
through a bedroom window must be a part of the escape
plan. If the sleeping area is above the ground floor, install a
means of safe descent outside the building if one does not
already exist.
All family members should plan to meet at a location away
from the house (such as a neighbor’s house) so everyone can
be accounted for.

If it is determined that the alarm was accidentally sounded,
the bell should be silenced, the detectors reset, and your
security company notified immediately that there is no
emergency situation.

System Events
Priority of Events
4.0 System Events
Your system automatically shows fire alarm, fire trouble, or
fire supervisory events as they occur. Fire trouble events
include such conditions as a broken wire or a point that did
not restore. Fire supervisory events include such conditions as
a closed sprinkler system valve.
4.1
Warning Displays and Tones
Your keypad emits one of several distinct tones and shows
custom text to alert you to system events. Additional bells or
horns can also be connected to your system. Audible and
visual devices such as horns and strobes alert you to
emergencies.
Bosch Security Systems, Inc. | 8/06 | F01U011793B
If more than one event occurs, your system sorts them into
groups, for example:
• Fire alarms (refer to Section 4.2 Fire Alarms on page 13)
• Fire troubles (refer to Section 4.3 Fire Troubles on page 14)
• Non-fire troubles (refer to Section 4.4 Non-Fire Troubles on
page 15)
The group with the highest priority (fire alarms) appears first
in the keypad’s display. Refer to the following sections for
descriptions of the tones and displays, and instructions for
silencing the tones.
4.2
Fire Alarms
Fire alarms are the highest priority events. When a fire point
activates, your keypad emits a pulsating high-pitched fire
tone. The tone sounds for the length of time set by your
servicing company.
13
Fire System | User’s Guide | 4.0
4.3
When this tone sounds, evacuate all
occupants and investigate for smoke or fire.
The keypad display shows only the point text of the first
point that entered fire alarm. Press [NEXT] or [PREV] to
acknowledge this alarm or any other alarm condition or other
condition that is not normal. The first pressing of the [NEXT]
key performs an acknowledge function. Refer to Section 3.0
Keypad Navigation Keys on page 12.
Subsequent pressing of the [NEXT] key after the
acknowledge function shows any additional points that
entered alarm. Use the [NEXT] and [PREV] keys to show
events from the oldest to the newest and the highest to the
lowest priority.
Bosch Security Systems, Inc. | 8/06 | F01U011793B
System Events
Fire Troubles
After an alarm silences, the device that caused the alarm is
usually still faulted or activated. Press [DETECTOR RESET]
to reset a smoke detector. Refer to Section 11.1.2 DETECTOR
RESET ? on page 25. A device in a state that is not normal
creates a fire trouble condition.
Examples of trouble conditions include such things as a
broken wire. When a fire trouble occurs, your keypad
repeatedly emits a series of three warble tones followed by a
pause.
The system shows the number of fire points with troubles
(A1 ## FIRE TRBLE) in an area and then shows the
custom text for the highest priority trouble condition. Use the
[NEXT] and [PREV] keys to view the other trouble
conditions.
