California Legislature Assembly Resolution

Californian is the only American state requiring the State Fire Marshal’s  ‘seal of approval’ to be placed on ionization ‘smoke’ alarms sold within the state.

However, the Californian Government’s Resolution (see below) contains a stunning  admission - that ionization detectors are NOT smoke detectors:
“Whereas, Renowned throughout the nation
 for his advocacy of photoelectric detectors,
 Chief Marc McGinn worked tirelessly over
 the course of his career to outlaw the use
 of ionization smoke detectors which are
 flame detectors and not smoke
 detectors. . .”
Discover how these Governors were deceived with the State Fire
Marshal’s mandatory ‘Seal of Approval’ on the “deadly” ionization smoke alarms in most Californian
Will Governor Brown rectify the State Fire Marshal’s mandatory ‘Seal of Approval’ on Defective Ionization Alarms?
Jerry Brown
Letter to Governor Deukmejian, 14 August, 1990  (page 22)
“The Government has an obligation to tell the public the truth
  when not knowing the truth will result in unnecessary deaths.”

“. . . any of the currently available listed
       smoke alarm technologies provide
       an acceptable level of protection . . .”

Assembly Resolution

     After presenting him with the Resolution, the Californian Government asked Chief McGinn not to make it public “for political reasons”. 
  However, Chief McGinn presented the Resolution to the World Fire Safety Foundation in May 2011 during his ‘Deadly Smoke Alarms’ tour of Australia & New Zealand.
    The Foundation believes it is in the public interest to make this information available to all American citizens.tourstory.htmlshapeimage_32_link_0
