Former State Fire Marshal Issues Urgent Warning
For over a decade Roger Johnson Has Warned About Ionization Alarms
"We have to sound our alarm now because the problem is, throughout
Indiana and throughout the nation, people have this false sense of
security right now with smoke detectors. I don't mean to scare
people but I think we have five million smoke detectors in this state
that are ionization smoke detectors that may fail in the time of need."

but because of the people
who do nothing about it."
