Saudi Gazette report RIYADH — The Civil Defense has stressed the importance of the availability of safety tools in houses and establishments. The safety tools play a major role in protecting humans, preserving the properties, such as the smoke alarm, which helps in avoiding loss of life and expedite evacuation operations. The Civil Defense said that the importance of the smoke alarm is that it alerts early in case there was a fire in the building, as it facilitates the detection of the location of the smoke and helps to quickly fight the fire. The smoke alarm works by issuing loud sounds that awaken the sleeper, including a warning signal to the residents of homes and workers in the facilities, in addition to that it senses the presence of smoke and warns of the occurrence of a fire.
