Fire Alarms Grantham Lincolnshire (NG31): How often do we hear or read about a fire related incident in a residential property in Grantham, which could possibly have been prevented if the fire alarm had sounded? Community services continually put out messages warning home owners and landlords in Grantham to check that their smoke detectors or alarms are fully operational. We all have a responsibility to ensure that we are compliant and that we follow fire protection and prevention procedures.
Fire spreads rapidly in the right conditions and smoke, which spreads even faster, is the cause of the majority of deaths in both domestic and commercial settings in Grantham. Early warning of the danger is essential, and both fire and smoke alarms save lives. Fire safety experts in Grantham recommend installing smoke alarms in domestic properties of any size in order to ensure that occupants are alerted to danger as soon as it occurs.
In domestic properties in Grantham it is usual to find smoke alarms to alert homeowners to the danger, but in commercial properties a combination of smoke and fire alarm systems are not only legally required, but essential in saving lives in the event of fire.
Ensuring that systems are working properly is crucial. Regular fire drills not only confirm this, but they raise staff awareness of the risks associated with fire. Staff should be encouraged to report problems encountered during drills such as blocked exits or obstructions in corridors. This can help to identify and resolve issues quickly and ensure that both staff and clients are able to make it safely from the building should the worst happen.
Fire Safety for the Elderly
Statistics collected nationally throughout the UK by fire safety officers in the fire and rescue services illustrate that in 38% of domestic fire related fatalities there are no smoke alarms fitted. A recent fire at a residential home for the elderly illustrated the fact that fire alarms save lives. There were no casualties, despite the fact that many residents had mobility issues; the successful evacuation of the building was down to the fact that the fire alarm system alerted staff and residents to the danger and the staff in particular were able to respond quickly.
Those at greatest risk from the threat of fire in domestic fires in Grantham are the over 80s and this group can benefit from installing fire alarms in even small domestic properties.
Alarms and Fire Safety Awareness
In the case of the residential care home, fire safety experts praised the awareness of both staff and residents in relation to fire safety procedures. The alarm system was tested regularly to ensure that it was working and regular fire risk assessments were completed, along with staff awareness training. The elderly and disabled are at the most risk from fire, and alarm systems are a crucial part of fire safety for these groups by giving the maximum warning and allowing time to evacuate a building in the event of a fire in Grantham.
The deaf and hard of hearing residents in Grantham need to be considered too, particularly at night when their hearing aids are switched off. A battery powered, wireless pad can be fitted under the pillow which vibrates at the sound of an alarm sounding.
Fire alarms and smoke detectors are known to save lives by giving the earliest warning to people. In the event of fire, deaf or hard of hearing people might not be able to hear the alarm, especially when they are asleep and there fire safety could be compromised as a result. A wireless system with a pad attachment that fits under a pillow enables deaf and hard of hearing people to be made aware when the fire alarm sounds.
