Smoke alarms and systems can also give a false signal.
What can happen to people’s belongings when a sprinkler system goes off through malfunction or false alarm, or a smaller fire?
Too much water in a fire can create too much steam, which is used to combat the fire.
It also penetrates the fire clothing, and hampers rescue efforts and can make conditions worse for casualties.
The stay put policy works, the media jumping all over it, is purely manipulation to create a panic.
Grenfell were offered sprinkler systems retrofitted, but they refused.
The whole thing has been taken of by the media and spun for a knee jerk reaction.
Channel 4 tried running a news report on some idiot that was trying to sue the police for their helicopter that wasn’t used for rescue and “gave false hope”.
Yea let’s just fly a combustion engine into super heated unburnt fuel, that’s what smoke is. People gobbing off about stuff they don’t have a clue about. And critiquing the very people trying to help.
Saying people ran to the roof for help, at what point in the fire safety advice doesnt say run to the roof?
Fire safety is personal preservation, there’s no point shooting up in the stairways, vandalising fire safety equipment, smoking in stairways and then ignoring the advice and moaning when it all goes up in smoke.
