The woman entered a meeting last month at San Vito al Tagliamento town hall and repeatedly ignored a request by its centre-left mayor to remove her niqab, which leaves only the eyes visible.

Police were called and removed the 40-year-old woman from the council assembly.

She has lived in San Vito al Tagliamento since 2000 and recently became an Italian citizen. (IANS)

Fire Control Equipment

Any home or office can benefit from certain fire equipment. Any room that has people sleeping or which poses a potential fire hazard should have smoke alarms installed, preferably wired into the building’s electrical system so dead batteries don’t become a problem. Portable fire extinguishers should also be easily accessible in several areas of the building. Finally, in public places, exits should be clearly marked with signs that can be seen through a haze of smoke. You can get all of these supplies in one place. Control Fire Systems is a fire equipment supplier that provides alarms, extinguishers, control panels, signage, and much more.

Equipment Testing and Maintenance

Certain pieces of fire safety equipment need to be tested on a regular basis or have certain maintenance steps that need to be performed, usually every year. After installing your equipment, the experts at Control Fire Safety can also provide you with regular maintenance to make sure that everything works properly year after year. This includes such tasks as fire sprinkler inspection to make sure that your equipment meets all local and national fire codes. Because sprinklers need to be tested on occasion, Control Fire Systems also offers fire sprinkler system testing. While you can test your alarms and sprinklers yourself if you so choose, having professionals on hard for fire sprinkler system maintenance and other tasks helps to avoid any errors. In many cases, this regular maintenance can also save you money on building insurance premiums.
