Hird, D. and Nash, P., 1956. AUTOMATIC FIRE DETECTION. Fire Research Notes 269


This report examines the saving of time which can be achieved by an automatic fire alarm system in calling the Fire Brigade to a fire, and interprets this time saving in terms of the increased probability of the Brigade reaching the fire before it is fully developed. It also surveys other factors which must be taken into account in examining the performance of automatic fire alarms.
