In 2021, fire detectors helped save nearly 600 people, including 245 children.
According to statistics, about 80% of all man-made fires occur in private residential buildings. Often the causes of fires are careless handling of fire, malfunctioning of household electric heating devices, as well as the use of artisanal heaters.
A fire detector is able to warn of a fire at the slightest smoke – in the first minutes of the development of a fire, you can evacuate and notify others about the danger.
From March 1, 2021, all housing under construction must be equipped with smoke detectors. At present, the procedure for agreeing on amendments to the Fire Regime Regulations in the Russian Federation is underway, which establishes a mandatory requirement for the equipment of already operated residential buildings of any number of storeys with detectors.
In Russia, since 2018, there have been targeted programs of various levels aimed at providing free housing equipment for certain groups of the population. Over 4 years, with the participation of the Russian Emergencies Ministry, over 534 thousand fire detectors have been installed within the framework of social support.
Let us recall that autonomous smoke detectors are devices that operate from an autonomous power source. Their performance can be determined by the flashing red LED installed on the case.
