Mitigating the loss of life and property caused by homeless fires
Detecting and reporting fires in homeless areas is difficult due to lack of resources. Homeless camps often have practical fires burning for heat and cooking that lead to unsafe conditions. They also make determining whether a fire is a threat hard, as traditional smoke detectors would be triggered by these regularly maintained fires. Detectors that are triggered by a rise in heat would be more helpful for this population. To have these heat sensing detectors also alert emergency services through would expedite getting them the help they need.
