Nationwide Fire News
The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), in collaboration with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, today released a report containing research findings on how using a powerful mathematical technique (Linear Discriminant Analysis) in home smoke alarms, combined with inexpensive microcontrollers, can reduce nuisance alarms. This "Smart Smoke Alarm" technology improves the performance of home smoke alarms without substantially increasing the cost to consumers. Download the free report from the USFA's website at www.usfa.fema.gov/prevention/technology/smoke_fire_alarms.html.
