Cold!!! Get these free from you local Fire station, fitting included as part of a Home Fire Safety Check.
Contact your Local Fire Station for details.

Fair doos, but a bargain for anyone that wants smoke alarms without contacting the Fire Service!
#3
X) Gr8 deal, thanks. I value my life too much to wait for somebody to fit a freebie...but the free service is great for those in need or unable to install themselves.

I agree with Zoltan66, free from the fire service, they called at our house one day (after a small house fire in the area) to do a safety check, and fitted 2 of them free of charge, even though i already had 2 working alarms fitted. They are good smoke alarms though, guaranteed for 10 years, and not as sensitive as traditional smoke alarms.

good find. have some heat
#6
as above these are free off the fireservice, we even fit them for free ive fitted so many of them only takes 10mins and whats the harm in having a few firefighters at ya house for 10mins if it ends up saving your family

I love a freebie, but you'd need to have a brass neck to go cap in hand to the local fire service for a free fire alarm.

It's like joining the queue at the local soup kitchen for a free meal!

The free fire alarms are meant for the poor and needy and, at the end of the day, you will be paying for all those "free" fire alarms via your tax.

A fire alarm is a basic safety item. Put your hand in your pocket and buy your own.

Voting this deal hot for those who don't have the brassiest of necks!

Who said they ( Fire Service Fitted Smoke Alarms) are only meant for the poor and the needy its not only the poor and the needy that die in their sleep from domestic fire incidents, at the moment we ( I am a serving Firefighter) are struggling to get in contact with anyone who does not currently have a functioning smoke alarm as we do not cold call and can only be invited into your home, Oh and its nice to actually see for a change what MY tax money is being spent on and to help prevent fire deaths.

That's gr8 service....all I was suggesting was that smoke alarms are an essential & those who are not able bodied or on the poverty line should benefit from such a service...... IMO

Totally agree. Theres free, and theres being cheap. And wasting the fire brigade's time - their free alarms would be meant for the infirm and elderly, not to be taken advantage of.
#13
got these installed for free by local fire brigade ......and its nothing to do with it being free may i add ( but a bonus ) its more to do with they check over your house and install the alarms where they will be most effective !!, as they said to us a lot of people buy fire alarms but dont install them in the correct places which is vital and can mean a matter of life or death if not in correct place !.................plus kids and i enjoyed sitting in there engine for a while having a nose around :D
#14
I actually don't see the fire brigades service as free. I think it is a service we pay for in our taxes where the fire service can come and do a fire check on your house, show a positive presence in the local community and make a proactive professional contibution to fire prevention in the home.

I would rather pay a couple of quid more through taxes and have the benefit of the fire service give their professional opinion on installation points and escape routes rather than stick them myself and risk it.

The deal is hot. The service the fire brigade offer is hotter!

The Home Fire Safety Check is for EVERYONE ... The Brigade have a target of 54,000 to be installed in the year 2010/2011 in West Yorkshire Alone ..... anymore they get bonuses .... no ur not wasting the time of the Brigade they want you to ask for it WHY ? cause it prevents and detects fires ... SAVES LIVES ..... if your kind to buy your own you still have to call the fire brigade for a home fire safety visit which means either way you still call the brigade out to your house (obviously calling the brigade is optional) Sometimes they come out and do random checks in areas which are High Risk

well I’m sorry mate but do think this comment is quite childish in its way.

you do not need to go to the fire station all you do is call the FREE phone number and give them your address and contact number they do the rest and come out to you.

now this benefits you in many ways you can have the alarms fitted and replaced they also do a home fire safety check this includes changing your electric blankets to new safer ones, change your deep fat fryer to a thermostatic ones so baring in mind if you have 2 smoke alarms a deep fat fryer and electric blanket this is a saving of over £100. Also let you know of any local events going on in your area that would also benefit you.

this was a fire that we were first on scene a few months ago and hit national news and had no detectors

now maybe if they would of known of this service we provided it would have been different!

“It's like joining the queue at the local soup kitchen for a free meal!” -no its like saving your family!

So instead of knocking it respect it pal and if you cant please keep your comments to your self.
I think its also nice to see people that pay tax get something back out of it because its usually just the ones that don’t pay tax that get the most!

I'm not your pal and, within reason, I post whatever comments I want on this public forum.

I hope that full-time firefighters are not installing these fire alarms!

In the current financial climate, is it really the best use of resources for a firefighter to fit smoke alarms in households?

I suppose it would make a change from them sleeping, watching TV or playing pool whilst on duty, though!

Whereas I object to MY taxes being wasted on firefighters doing stuff like this for people who can easily afford to buy a smoke alarm and fit it themselves.

What next? Will the fire service go round all the houses again in a year to change the batteries in the smoke alarms?
