The Foundation recently completed a Phase 1 project related to characterizing nuisance sources for home smoke alarms. A report for this project is available on the Foundation's website. The Phase 1 effort included a literature review on the topic, a gap analysis, and recommendations to fill the gaps. The Phase 2 effort includes testing that would fill some of the knowledge gaps around nuisance sources related to both cooking and other types of nuisances, specifically steam.
An RFP has been issued for the Phase 2 project with proposals due on Friday, May 9th.
