During an average winter, 25,000 people die as a result of ‘extreme cold weather’ in England and Wales.
Mild hypothermia increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and respiratory disease – and the likelihood of falls. Cold weather and poorly heated homes create a severe risk to health, particularly for the old, the infirm and the very young. The cost to society is enormous: 25 000 deaths; 200 000 admissions to hospital; 750 000 social service calls; 800 000 out-patient visits.
For many, heating their home is a financial struggle: 4 million households (19%) are in fuel poverty*. This could rise to 9.2 million by 2016 (43%)
The FireAngel Cold Alarm provides an early warning before the room temperature falls to a dangerously low level.
Heating can then be concentrated in a single room or residents can move to a warmer area or seek help before hyperthermia or worse occurs.
