This brochure has two important messages:

1. Ionization smoke alarms "should be replaced".

2. "For both flaming fires and smouldering fires,

     photoelectric smoke alarms are more likely to

     alert occupants in time to escape safely".

 

Note: The points above are highlighted (by the

          WFSF) in the brochure below.
