Home Fire Detection
Every day the Fire and Rescue Service is called to over 140 home fires. These result in more than 500 deaths and in excess of 11,000 injuries each year, although many of these incidents can be prevented if people have an early warning and are able to get out of the building in time.
The simplest type of smoke alarms are devices that incorporate a smoke detector and give a very loud beeping sound when activated. They are about the size of a hand and are normally fitted to the ceiling. They can detect fires in their early stages and give you those precious minutes to enable you and your family to leave your house in safety.
