This phenomenon hasn ʼ t gone unnoticed by the media, asthey too have documented this, and have even conducted tests to show the public.The purpose of this presentation is to provide factual information to explain whypeople are dying with working smoke alarms, so we as leaders can educate the publicand effect policy that will save lives. This presentation will help you will gain a betterunderstanding of the vast differences between ionization and photoelectric smoke alarms.We feel strongly that the wrong smoke alarm is prevalent in our residential structures andthat is why so many people are dying in fires with working smoke detectors. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Fire Chiefs Presentation______________________ FFFS FireChiefsPresentation18Dec09.pdf - Check for latest version at:www.FFFS.info3 of 43    Home < < <02 of 39> > >   This is a picture of my daughter Andrea. You ʼ ll also notice on the right the house shedied in. The house was equipped with ionization detectors, some worked and some hadthe batteries removed. Andrea and four other students died of smoke inhalation, not theheat.Most people don ʼ t get burned to death, they die from smoke inhalation. The smokedetector that would have detected the smoke first would have possibly given the studentsa chance. We ʼ ll talk about why batteries get removed from ionization detectors later. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Fire Chiefs Presentation______________________ FFFS FireChiefsPresentation18Dec09.pdf - Check for latest version at:www.FFFS.info4 of 43
