A Helping Hand With Recognising Central Criteria Of Smoke Detectors In London

The initiative was devised by the Chief Fire Officers Association (CFOA) and was launched with widespread support from MPs, Councillors and Chief Fire Officers. They have signed an open letter to government asking for a review of provisions for fire sprinklers in building standards as well as a more proactive approach to the use of sprinkler and fire suppression systems. The sprinkler issue is already a high priority for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Service has worked extensively with housing provider Nottingham City Homes to identify which of their properties are occupied by people who are most at risk of fire. As a result Nottingham City Homes is installing sprinklers into some of its high rise blocks and new build bungalows and flats. Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service has also invested in a number of portable misting systems which will be allocated to some of the countys most vulnerable residents. Officers from the Services Fire Protection team are using Fire Sprinkler Week to raise awareness and promote the use of sprinklers in commercial premises. Chief Fire Officer Frank Swann said: For some time now nearly all fire and rescue services across the country have been promoting the use of sprinklers in both domestic and commercial properties. Many, like us, have been working alongside partners such as housing providers to ensure sprinklers are either retro-installed as necessary or are included in the plans for new-build properties. Although the issue has been on the national agenda for a while, it is important that initiatives like this are used to further promote awareness and understanding, as well as winning support from the government. We are therefore pleased to support Fire Sprinkler Week and will do all we can as a Service to continue to keep this issue at the forefront of peoples hearts and minds.

Blue paint sprayed on headstones at a churchyard in Hillingdon, west London was discovered on Sunday morning. It follows a similar attack at the same Harefield Church graveyard in April ahead of celebrations to commemorate 100 years since Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC)forces landed in Gallipoli, Turkey in their first major military action of World War One. "We are extremely disappointed by this deliberate act of vandalism and deplore the actions of those responsible," said Mike Bullen, assistant director general for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) which manages the graves. There are no clear words or symbols which can be made out in the graffiti to indicate any motive. Around 10,000 ANZAC forces died in the Gallipoli campaign against Ottoman Empire forces in 1915 and April 25 is used around the world as a day to remember all those Australians and New Zealanders who died in conflict.
