The Australasian Fire Authorities Council (AFAC) applies an integrated approach to emergency service operations in Australia and New Zealand. With recent increases in unwanted false alarms, AFAC identified kitchen exhaust systems as a potential solution to reduce unwanted false alarms in residential buildings. Our team conducted a cost-benefit analysis on installing kitchen exhaust systems and determined it is cost-effective to install local exhaust in low-rise but not high-rise buildings. Through our findings, we recommend investigation into alternative solutions.
