Deadline 15th January
Humberside Fire and rescue are currently consulting with members of the community around non-attendance at businesses when there is an automatic fire alarm activation and no confirmed fire.
Humberside Fire & Rescue Service receives on average over 1400 false alarm calls every year from businesses and organisations that are an unnecessary drain on emergency service resources.
Attending false alarms increases the blue light road risk to the public and their crews and reduces their ability to provide prevention and protection services to the community, train and practice for emergencies and attend genuine 999 calls.
For example, the time lost by the Service for attending these false alarms is on average 523 hours per year.
