The Economic Cost of Disruption Caused by Unwanted Automatic Fire Alarms - Live Webinar


A 60 minute live webinar presented by Mark Whybro of Fire and Rescue NSW


Time: 10:00am - 11:00am AEDT

Date: Thursday 28 January 2021

Each day in New South Wales there are on average 120 false automatic fire alarm (AFA) activations, with Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) responding to more than 45,000 in FY 2019-2020. AFAs are a key safety feature of modern buildings and facilities, providing early warning to occupants and automatic notification to fire services for higher risk premises. Unwanted activations, however, potentially divert fire crews from genuine emergencies, and can cause disruptions to business, individuals and the broader community.


While FRNSW had a good understanding of its response and administrative costs from unwanted alarms, the broader economic costs have not been well researched, either within Australia or internationally.


Register for this free webinar to find out more about the cumulative costs of unwanted alarms and the resultant disruption the community, industry, commerce, governments, the motoring public and the economy of NSW.
