1.Fire alarm system alert you to vacate the building earliest.
2.Alarm system gives a chance to building service team to rapid response to pin point location of fire & extinguish fire.
3. Fire alarm system also activate water sprinkler mounted in wall & ceiling.

It is required depending upon norms of the local governing body like municipal corporation etc.

IN Delhi By-Laws:For multi-storeyed build¬ings which are more than 15 m height and for special buildings like assembly, institutional, industrial, storage and hazardous occupancies,

There shall be a control room on the entrance floor of the building with communication system (suitable public address system) to all floors and facilities for receiving the message from different floors. Details of al1 floor plans along with the details of fire fighting equipment and installations shall be maintained in the Control Room. The control room shall also have facilities to detect the fire on any floor through Indicator Boards connecting fire detecting and alarm system on all floors. The staff incharge of control room shall be responsible for the maintenance of the various services and fire fighting equipment and installations.

Fire alarms are required at Process industry, air port, Corporate officies etc.
When there is any fire takes place temperature of that place suddenly increases.
Sensors will detect it within a second and alarm rings.

The exact requirements vary with local laws, but I think they are required now in all buildings except private homes.
