Fires spread fast, and in less than 30 seconds a small flame can turn into a major fire. A monitored smoke and heat detection system communicates to the Circle Industries Monitoring Center 24/7 whether you are home or not. Upon detection of the first signs of danger, the system will sound a siren to allow for safe evacuation. Upon detection, the monitoring center will dispatch the local emergency personnel to keep your family and property safe. Every second counts, so a monitored fire alarm system operates regardless of whether your alarm system is armed.
A home structure fire was reported every 85 seconds in the year 2010¹. About 85% of all U.S. fire deaths in 2009 occurred in homes². Further, most victims of fires die from smoke or toxic gases and not from burns².
Many people think of fire as bright, but it is actually pitch black³. Fires quickly produce black smoke that can fill a house³. The heat alone can rise to a temperature in five minutes that will cause everything in a room to ignite at once³. This is commonly referred to as flashover³. A smoke detector is key to early detection allowing safe evacuation.
