...the need of a good, up-to-date, properly maintained fire alarm system is still paramount to the protection of homes and businesses...

Discount Fire Supplies, an online retailer of fire alarms and other emergency products, have added a post to their website sharing their thoughts on a recent review of fire and rescue authorities in the UK.

Sir Ken Knight, former Chief Fire and Rescue Adviser to the Government, recently released a report detailing his review of the efficiencies and operation in fire and rescue authorities (http://www.gov.uk). The purpose of the review, commissioned by the Fire Minister, Brandon Lewis MP, was to explore the activity of fire and rescue authorities and see what the scope for change might be. Sir Ken took evidence from fifteen different fire and rescue authorities.

Although there has been a vast decrease in incidents Sir Ken reports that 'no significant change in the make up or cost of the service has taken place.' He goes on to explain how there is room for reconfiguration to better match the service to the current risk and response context and that if average spending was matched across the authorities savings could amount to over one hundred and ninety six million pounds a year.

Discount Fire Supplies share their thoughts on this and Sir Ken's suggestions for improvement in their latest blog post at discountfiresupplies.co.uk. In their post Discount Fire Supplies show concern that changes to Fire and Rescue authorities could leave homes and businesses unprotected and question if the contribution from societal changes, technological advances, smoke alarm ownership, safety campaigns and government regulations is really significant enough to reduce the funding in this sector.

They go on to express that the need of a good, up-to-date, properly maintained fire alarm system is still paramount to the protection of homes and businesses alike and urge their customers not to become complacent.
