2. Smoke Generation
Smoke follows heat, so phase two of any fire is visible to the naked
eye – and to a smoke detector. However, once smoke rises, the risk of
rapid combustion is very high. A reaction in phase two may be too late.
In this final phase, both fire and smoke are clearly evident. Today,
both CCTV cameras and smoke detectors alert operators to flare-ups, but
their alarms often come too late to avert the loss of life and property.
That’s why the SAFETIS was designed to give safety pros a fighting
chance at stopping a fire.
