Fire Alarm / High Rise

Newquay at 05/08/2020 04:19

We received a 999 call reporting a fire alarm sounding at a high rise property in Newquay. As per our policy for high rise buildings, a pre-determined attendance of three appliances, an aerial ladder platform and an officer were mobilised. Two appliances and the aerial ladder platform came from Newquay with the third appliance coming from Perranporth and a Group Manager from St Austell.

On arrival crews carried out a thorough investigation of the property and after speaking with occupants it was discovered that a manual call point had been pressed in error.
