“Ionization smoke alarms may not operate in time to alert
  occupants early enough to escape from smouldering fires.”

     In the mid 60‘s manufacturers claimed the new ionization ‘product of combustion’ alarms would safely activate before any heat or smoke.
     After thousands of deaths and injuries in homes fitted with these ‘magical’ new alarms, the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) urged Fire Chiefs to perform a test so they could see for themselves why they were not safe (see the IAFC’s report
     Why is there such a battle to reveal the truth to fire fighters?  Given the decades of misinformation, who can you trust?

     Tragically, the facts about ionization technology has been kept from fire fighters for well over thirty years.
     Countless fire fighter deaths and injuries will continue until the truth is exposed - and that’s why we need YOUR help.  Examine the facts, and the fallacies then please spread the word to every fire fighter you know.

Thank you.
