    Did this about a year ago. I would recommend it to anyone. They will fit smoke alarms wherever necessary - ie. if you either don't have them or have them in the wrong places :thumbsup:

    Would recommend this to everyone. We didn't actually book an appointment with them, the firemen knocked on our door one night.

    Asked us some questions like do we smoke, do we have a chip pan (who would have a chip pan now when you can have an Actifry), did we have a window that opened wide upstairs, that type of thing. Then they fitted two smoke alarms, one upstairs and one downstairs. It only took about 10 minutes.

    What a great service for FREE too.

    because the best chips are cooked in a traditional deep pan with lard, not the ****** chips done in plastic container with oil :thumbsup:

    I was meant to phone these guys today but i forgot until i seen this ;)

    Quick question that maybe one of you can answer before they do, this house has a smoke alarm system already set up, theres 3, one in the lving room, one at the top of the landing and one in the attic, they all seem to be linked up to eachother with wires, will they sort this and take them away, only reason i dont use them is ive lost one of them while decorating, the other 2 think there is something wrong with the missing one and are constantly bleeping :x

    Thanks

    Yeh and if you tell them you haven't got a muster point they move you to a bigger house with a big garden so that you can congregate in it should you have a fire.:-D

    no. they're hard wired smoke alarms. if you ask nicely they will put up new alarms and you can turn the hard wired ones off at the mains. if they're beepin they're faulty. open one and if it has a battery in (some have batterys in as back up in case your electricity is out) then its done and replacing the batteries will stop them beepin!!

    My g/f booked this 18 months ago and they finally turned up last week. G/f was at work at the time and I was home so I had to sit there through an hour of their rattling on about wiring, escape routes, etc., about which anyone with a bit of common sense would already be aware. still, a free smoke alarm's a free smoke alarm. heat added (if you'll excuse the pun).

    they are spot on, they must consider PCs a fire hazard, coz they put a smoke alarm in every room I have a PC, ended up with 5 free smoke alarms. . I also think if you have **** smoke alarms they replace them with fresh ones with a 10 year battery life. . . and all for free. . .

    That sounds like a good idea (10year battery) considering most people forget to replace the batteries in the smoke alarm

    Me too - what a bonus - fire alarm AND fireman :)

    I am a fireman and we doa lot of HFRA visits. We aim to locate ten year alarms to replace those older one year ones. If the house has old type then we would normally put a new one at the top and bottom of the stairs. We usually leave the old alarms with the owners as there is nothing wrong with them so you may choose to use them in a bedroom, garage or office etc.

    Always rememebr that firemen love fresh cream cake and tea!!! We take the lorry with us so the kids can have a play too!

    If you want one of these visits (they are free) pop into your local fire station and ask them about it. It is a huge part of our job today so you are not putting us out at all.

    A working smoke alarm can and, believe me DOES save lives. Don't reply on hearing a fire because at night you probably wouldn't. The alarm gives you the valuable minutes needed to get you and your family out. This is the most important bit
