Mobility Impaired Data base
I am investigating the idea of a data base of people who would have difficulty escaping from their house in the event of fire due to physical or mental impairment.
Due to the ageing population and lack of old folk homes, many people are being cared for in their own homes during the day but left alone at night.
The idea is that when the address comes up a special message is attached to inform responding crews of the likelyhood of a person being unable to escape.
I am in Adelaide South Australia a city of about 1.2 mill.
Are there any other Fire Departments that have set up anything similar and what are the major problems?
