AbstractA full-scale research project was undertaken to address one of the nuisance alarm problems in correctional facilities using a temporarily abandoned prison range in Kingston, ON, Canada. The objective of the research project was to determine-if the in-cell smoke detectors could be moved outside of cells and still provide an equivalent level of fire protection that the fire risk to inmates in the cell of fire origin would not exceed critical limits for carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and temperature.
