CCTV fire detection cameras work by using image processing technology so they detect fire on a video feed in real time.
As compared to smoke detectors, CCTV fire detection systems can cover a much larger are for monitoring.
These systems can also detect fires across a long distance, in most cases as far as several hundred meters away. This makes CCTV fire detection optimal to use for sports facilities including golf courses or large stadiums.
For large sports venues, fire safety has in the past always been a problem that wasn’t easily addressed, or at least not without considerable obstacles. Smoke detectors, for instance can only monitor a very limited location. They have to be in the immediate vicinity of a smoke or fire to be activated. Because of that, they are unsuitable to monitor large structures or the outdoors.
But modern CCTV fire detection systems have more advantages that go beyond their farther range. They are very fast and reliable when it comes to fire detection, with detection rates that are often just seconds. False alarms are also kept at bare minimum, compared to older fire detection systems. What’s more, CCTV fire detection systems can automatically call emergency services in the case of a fire. By providing the fire brigade with accurate GPS coordinates for the fires spotted, they can greatly reduce response times. As a result, safety for people is greatly increased and structural fire damage can be kept at a minimum.
For sports venues in particular, from golf courses to race tracks, CCTV fire detection is the ideal way to detect fires fast and reliably.
Sports still has a priority for many families in United Kingdom and this is certainly a good thing. Even in a time where a lot of our youth spends more hours in front of a computer than they did a decade or so ago, activities such as playing soccer or other team sports are still quite high and the list of what lots of young folks in the UK like to spend their free time on.
With that in mind, aware of all the benefits of sporting activity, last but not least for health and fitness, it becomes clear that finding a school that can offer your children those things can be very important. Here is exactly where the problem is: Not all schools in United Kingdom are equally good when we look at what they offer in terms of sports. Some schools might even entirely fore-go sports, deeming them as less important for what they think would be a “proper” education.
It is for that reason not surprising that a lot of families today get away from our public education system and looking towards private schooling. They prefer independent, private schools that make it a priority that pupils have plenty of choices in regards to sports and other activities. It is also a fact that a number of our private schools have some of the best kept and up-to-date sports facilities in our nation.
Know that choosing a school for your children could be the deciding thing over how your children will spend the next decade or two. If your children love sports such as soccer, hockey or swimming, why deny them their passion and fun by making a less than optimal decision when it comes to their education?
I always tell folks that they should look carefully look at what a school has to offer and never haste this decision. If your children will be stuck with a school for the next 10 or more years it would be worth it to spend some time on finding the best school for them. So, what this means is that you should always compare several schools side-by-side and possibly also allow your children to spend a week or two “test” a school as well. A good decision can then be made a lot easier!

According to a new study, more than 1.8 million people in the United Kingdom belong to sports clubs. The article at the BBC website reports that about 3 million competitions took place in the UK in the previous year.
The study had been commissioned with the goal to examine the impact of governing bodies in delivering sports to a wide audience. The study shows that 9 million people take part in at least 30 minutes physical activity each and every day.
The study had been launched at the same time together with a a new chief executive officer forum which hopes to act as an independent voice to influence national and local policy on sport.
Professor Simon Shibli of Sheffield Hallam University who led the study in a public statement: “it says much about how much sport matters. Our research demonstrates the huge impact NGBs are making in the delivery of sport in England at community and elite level, and their growing influence in international sports administration.”
He added: “The fact that over one million more people belong to sports clubs than the combined total of all UK political party membership says much about how much sport matters to the wider population.”
Likewise, the report has shown that volunteering linked to the governing bodies was worth almost 5 billion British pounds in 2014.
