As part of the Cut False Alarms Costs Campaign the Fire Industry Association – known as the FIA – has launched an infographic detailing the extent of the problem.
The initiative is the latest development in the Cut False Alarm Costs campaign which began in July last year, with an emphasis on the opportunity to save money through properly managing detection systems.
According to the FIA , fire services attended 312,000 false alarms between 2011 and 2012, with a total cost to the UK of £1 billion.
Not only do such incidents result in a waste of time and money for the fire crews, but they also disrupt a business’s activities and subsequently damage productivity.
