The Foundation has initiated a Phase 1 project on Smoke Alarm Nuisance Source Characterization.  The overall objective of the project is to characterize common nuisance sources for the development of new smoke alarm test protocols in order to meet the requirements for nuisance resistance in the 2013 edition of NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code.  The scope of the Phase 1 project is a literature review, gap analysis, and development of a test plan to fill the knowledge gaps.  For more information, please see the project summary.
