Our operator responded to the signal in under 5 seconds and the fire brigade dispatched. The Fire Brigade arrived on site just in time to see the curtains in the kitchen catching fire.
The occupant had gone out and left a Tea Towel on the element; this ultimately caught fire and spread to the curtains.
Due to the quick and decisive actions of our Operator the only damage was a wee bit of smoke damage and new curtains required. This highlights not only the value of having smoke detectors hard wired into your alarm panel but the absolute value in having the alarm monitored. Had this happened to a home without monitored smoke detectors, without a doubt the home would have either sustained serious damage or been destroyed. And imagine if it was later at night and the occupant had gone to bed – monitoring is peace of mind knowing we’re always there.
Special Offer: have a hard wired smoke detector added to your existing system from only $175.00* incl. gst and installation. Offer valid until 30th Sep 2012.
