About the Seminar

Over the years, it is the mission of the HKFSD to formulate fire safety policy for better protection of life and property in the territory. With a view to enhancing building fire safety, the HKFSD aims to promote the wider use of stand-alone fire detectors in buildings of Hong Kong.

Stand-alone fire detectors are widely popular in overseas and proven as a highly cost-effective means in minimizing the losses in case of fire. The purpose of installation of a stand-alone fire detector is to give early warning to occupants in the incipient stage of a fire that enables the occupants to evacuate before their escape route becomes untenable to pass through.

This CPD session of sharing will provide background information on the use of stand-alone fire detectors, the corresponding regulatory control and the proposal to exempt stand-alone fire detectors from the application of relevant regulations.
