2. The Solution: Exposing the Forty Year Ionization 'Smoke' Alarm Fraud

"The American Red Cross is a victim of, and an unwitting

 accomplice to, the forty year ionization 'smoke' alarm fraud."

Adrian Butler, Chairman, Co-Founder, WFSF, QLD, Australia  |  12 July 2015

  • For 15 years the WFSF has exposed ionization 'smoke' alarms life-threatening defects and promoted the safe photoelectric alternatives.

  • U.S. and Australian photoelectric-specific legislation and an increasing number of ionization alarm law suits vindicate our stand.

  • People (falsely) believe, "If the Red Cross installs them they must be OK."

  • Volunteers may be liable when loss of property, death or injury occurs as a result of a Red-Cross-installed ionization alarm (see The C.A.N. Report).

  • Ionization alarms should be banned and recalled. The public, fire officials
    and fire fighters should be made aware of the truth so they can make informed decisions* about smoke alarms.

Life-Safety & Litigation Concerns
 with Ionization 'Smoke' Alarms

Open Letters warning of life-safety & Litigation concerns
 with the ARC distributing ionization alarms to be sent to:

4. The WFSF Campaign: Informing U.S. Citizens and Red Cross Volunteers

The WFSF's 2015 smoke alarm campaign will focus on informing U.S. citizens, Red Cross volunteers and fire fighters about life-safety and litigation concerns when installing ionization 'smoke' alarms and the safe photoelectric alternatives.

'Red Cross' Page Construction Notes:

1. Freedom of Information request to ask how many of the alarms given out by

    the ARC were ionization.

 

2. Will the ARC indemnify its volunteers if someone dies in a home fitted with an
    ionization alarm when the volunteer installed it without pay and in good faith?

 

3. Ask the ARC to write to UTC and ask for disclosure of CSIRO test data.

 

4. Create a dedicated page to explain opportunity to RC volunteers by them

     refusing to install ionization alarms
