Alarm Investigation Facility (AIF)

The Alarm Investigation Facility (AIF) provides for a programmed delay
between the annunciation of alarm on the LCD and activation of the
alarm devices and fire brigade alarm routing outputs. This delay allows a
suitably trained operator time to acknowledge the alarm and then
investigate the situation and reset any nuisance alarms.
