Devon and Somerset Fire announces changes to alarm response policy
7:30pm Tuesday 29th October 2013 in News
FIRE teams will no longer respond to automatic fire alarms for non-residential properties between certain hours.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service is implementing the change from Friday (November 1) to limit the amount of wasted journeys.
Following consultation, the service will not attend alarms between the hours of 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, unless a fire has been confirmed.
