Royal Berkshire Fire Authority is asking people to consider how their fire and rescue service responds to Automatic Fire Alarms in lower risk, occupied buildings as part of a public consultation. The consultation will run from Monday, 17 January to Monday, 28 March 2022.
The consultation, which will run for 10 weeks, is asking for people’s views on how their fire and rescue service responds to Automatic Fire Alarms in lower risk, occupied buildings such as shops, office blocks and factories. This is because 99% of the Automatic Fire Alarm calls are false alarms. These calls place a significant burden on the Fire and Rescue Service, with on average, 2,200 Automatic Fire Alarm calls attended every year that are false alarms.
The Fire Authority is encouraging as many people as possible to have their say on the two options detailed within the Automatic Fire Alarm Consultation Document.
