The true value of data is found in the insights it offers when it is disseminated to key stakeholders and acted upon to improve results. The use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning for data analysis is forecasted to substantially increase. In fact, IDC says ‘the amount of analyzed data that is ‘touched’ by cognitive systems will grow by a factor of 100 to 1.4 zettabytes in 2025’.

  • The latest Home Office figures reveal that there were a total of 3,139 false fire alarms caused by the “malicious activation of (a) fire call point/alarm” in England during 2018/19. This demonstrates an increase of 111 on the previous year – resulting in the highest figure on record.

    Accidental activations also saw an increase during this period; 14,606 false fire alarms were recorded due to accidental and careless activation, a significant increase of 497 false alarms making it the highest number since 2012.

    Continuing to be the largest incident type, false fire alarms accounted for 40 per cent of the incidents attended by Fire and Rescue Services in England in 2019 – fires accounted for just 32 per cent.

The British Standard Institute recommends in section 20.2b), that: “All MCPs should be fitted with a protective cover, which is moved the gain access to the frangible elements.”

    Safety technology International manufacture a range of protective covers, from integral covers to outdoor and sounder models; there are variations to suit all applications. These covers are specifically designed to prevent false alarms whether accidental or malicious.
