Tool Box Topic - Smoke Detectors
(Shared from TJ Lyons, TFS)
This week’s topic is one to take home and I wanted to share with you all. One of our field folks recommended the topic. I had no idea. Here is what I sent. Took a look and for there is some solid science on this.
“If you have infants or toddlers or teens or grandkids that sleep over… you need to know they probably won’t wake when a smoke detector sounds. This was discovered a few years ago and thankfully was brought to our attention by one of our safety managers, Bobby Salazar. Please consider the value and limitations of smoke detectors and share this where you can. For a great summary of a test here in the US, click here for the details https://abcnews.go.com/US/children-sleep-smoke-detector-alarm/story?id=46133010 https://www.usfa.fema.gov/current_events/121318.html ”
Hope all is well.
