  The fire alarm system plays a critical role for the safety of building occupants. However, in the past two years from 2016 to 2017, occasionally false alarms at the Taiwan Photon Source (TPS) occurred. Results of more detailed observations indicated that radiation and/or electromagnetic interference (EMI) of the TPS accelerator disturb smoke detectors and signal line circuits (SLCs). Lead shielding covers, adjusting of the detector alarm verification time and a laser-based aspi-rating smoke detector were used to reduce the probabil-ity that fire alarms become activated to less than 0.5 times per year.
