Drengenberg - UL:
“We know if it’s a working smoke
 alarm, when the smoke hits that
 alarm, it will sound the alarm.”

Underwriters Laboratories
Bob Segall
Investigative Journalist
WTHR ‘13 Investigates’

Segall - ‘13 Investigates’:
“That just doesn’t make sense . . . 
 Is there any scientific explanation
 for why, in this real-world situation,
 we have smoke detectors not
 going off in a room full of smoke?”
Drengenberg - UL:
“I really don’t know!”
“In test, after test, after test, ‘13 Investigates’ and local fire
  departments have discovered, in rooms full of heavy smoke,
  ionization smoke alarms did not activate for a long time . . . 
  So how did all the smoke alarms get one of these - a seal
  of approval from Underwriters Laboratories?”
