In Norfolk, Fire and Rescue service are always on call to respond to fire alarms. Fire Alarm systems can go off at any moment so the Fire and Rescue service try to get there as quick as possible. But where there are fire alarms, there are also false alarms. When the Fire Service responds to these they bear the cost. The Fire and Rescue Service in Norfolk plan to tackle this situation by not acknowledging an automatic fire alarm until confirmation of a fire is acquired.
