    Was quite shocked after watching the watchdog report on smoke alarms. I personally was unaware the majority of children do not wake up when a smoke alarm is sounding.

    Yes, saw that myself and wasn’t aware that children tend to respond more to low frequency noise and not hear the high frequency noise of smoke alarms when asleep.

    What I thought was a silly comment from some expert on the programme was it really only mattered if the adults in a house are alerted by the alarm noise!
    Surely if your children are in a different floor or opposite side of a house where fire or smoke first develops, they would need to be awakened?
