DEADLY Ionization Smoke Alarms Exposé
Background & Tour Highlights  -  1 of 3

Vermont, USA

Fire Brigades Official Position
     On 01 June, 2006 after extensive research, the Official Position Statement on residential smoke alarms was published.  The position has allegedly been adopted by all Australian and New Zealand Fire Brigades.  The statement warned that the ionization type of smoke alarms in almost all Australian & New Zealand homes,  “...may not operate in time to alert occupants early enough to escape from smouldering fires”, and,“That all residential accommodation be fitted with photoelectric smoke alarms.”

The Tour
   Tragically most Australian and New Zealander homes are still fitted with ionization alarms and most members of the public (and fire fighters) are unaware of the Fire Brigades official position.
     From 02 - 16 May, 2011, retired US Fire Chief Marc McGinn, and Adrian Butler, Chairman of the World Fire Safety Foundation meet with fire brigades, politicians and the media in an attempt to expose the truth about the ‘deadly’ ionization smoke alarms found in almost all Australian and New Zealand homes.
