“Mr Henderson (the Chief Minister) says the alarms will have to be
photoelectric devices, which seem to be far more efficient and safer
than ionisation detectors.

Indeed, American fire chief Marc McGinn says 1500 Americans die in
house fires every  year and thousands more are maimed because
their ionisation alarms don't go off until the property is well alight. This presents Mr Henderson with something of a dilemma.”

“. . .the ionization alarms have failed* Australian
Standards since 1993. But while the code
was improved it was never made mandatory.”

Regarding WFSF quote:
“Ionization alarms are technically not a smoke
 detector, they are a sub-micron particle detector.
 It’s actually fraudulent to call them a smoke alarm.”
