Any proof X)

Cracking find for a pound

Always wonder why co2 alarms cost so much compare to smoke alarms. No excuse to not have these in every room.

My local fire station did a free fire safety check and supplied and fit 2 free fire angel smoke alarms a few weeks ago. Very quick to call and free alarms were great.

Even cheaper option is to contact your local fire station and ask for a free home fire safety check. If you don't have any they will supply you for free

​whilst I endorse the fire safety check, please only take the smoke alarms if you really can't afford it as the fire service must have to soak up the cost

The cost of two smoke alarms in negligible, probably about £10, compared to the total cost of the 'free' fire safety check. The whole scheme is a waste of money - designed to keep staff busy and justify their employment, seeing there are far fewer fires today that previously.

Yeah your dead right. Who really needs the fire service now. I obviously exclude those who do actually need rescuing from fires, and those who don't but wouldn't mind the fire being put out anyway. People in motor accidents, those trapped in floods, stuck in lifts, mangled in machinery, stuck under buildings, fallen in water, hit by trains, effected by chemicals, involved in terrorist attacks and a hundred things in between. But yeah your right, who needs a fire service seeing there are far fewer fires today than previously. We will even correct spelling for you. (even if the grammar it's still terrible)
Ps fitting smoke alarms to make the elderly, ill and vulnerable safer is a terrible waste of money purely designed to justify employment. You must be some kind of genius.

Thank you

Idiot

not sure why people buy fire alarms - i contacted my local fire department and they came out and fitted two smoke alarms and a special one for the kitchen - talked through some really good advice that we weren't currently doing - eg closing kitchen door every night before bed as will give you an extra 30 minutes to get out of the house if a fire starts in kitchen - where its most likely too.

fantastic.

You sir, are an almighty **** for making that statement

Thanks, picked up a couple of packs. Marked up at £8.99, scan at £1

I like this website, but it does appear to attract some real prats.

Would you really call out the fire service just to save you a few quid on fire alarms? Its like the people who go to their doctors to get free prescriptions for Nurofen and Paracetamol readily available for 20-50p a packet - then moan when they have to wait for appointments when they have a real issue.

Its shocking, people dont appear to value their and others wasted time as oppose to spending a £1.

Has anyone found it on another B&M ??

i took my son to an event at local library where the local fire service attended and announced that they provide this service free of charge. be rude not too. when they came out (to a house we'd recently bought) they confirmed the original alarms were situated in the wrong place which to me was quite obvious but still nice to have it confirmed

Think our money (tax payers) can be spent on better stuff other than coming to your house cos you can't be bothered to buy a couple of smoke detectors. Like training so our loved ones can survive a blaze.
Shame on you Jakey my boy.

No point having a smoke alarm if you don't test it once a month. I am guilty of forgetting this.

Whether you've got one already of have just bought these...

​Agreed. Some people just beggar belief at times.

I had the free fire safety check a couple of years ago. As well as fitting the two smoke alarms (in the correct place), they confirmed that my plug sockets were not overloaded and checked my night time routine. The best bit of advice was regarding my door key which i routinely left on the table in the living room. It had never occurred to me that i wouldn't be able to open the door in the event of a fire/smoke in that room. And, prash_2k, don't worry, your tax is being spent on training. Training the public how to prevent/escape from fires.

i bought these last month, one of them randomly went off a few times, first time during the night - Nearly had a heart attack! I bought a different one from b and q and have had no issues with it. Its possible i got a dodgy one but I wouldnt buy it again.

Also bought some last month to replace an existing one but not used yet

So, as the Fireman (that does pith all, all day) has got your ass thrown over his shoulder, coming down a ladder to bring you to safety and then go and retrieve the rest of your family from your burning home, be sure to tell him/her to put you down at once as he's only trying to justify his existence....

And shame on you prashdash_2k. My friend had a fire at her home and suggested I contact them to get a quick check.They provided excellent advice. Keep your opinions to yourself and think what u like but I have a disability and found them very helpful. I have also had crime prevention officers out as well. I don't consider I wasted anyone's time at all. Some people on here don't know all the facts so stop judging people u do not even know. I actually already had a smoke alarm which I paid for myself but they still put 2 more in.

Be aware that the EVEREADY brand is not the battery company from years ago. The brand is being used on horrible cheap rubbish from China to fool people into thinking it is an established quality brand. I bought some eveready brand lightbulbs and they were the worst I have ever had, they literally fell apart in the socket and those that did work lasted a couple of months at best. Don't waste your money on this cheep rubbish.

Consider that a smoke alarm is a safety device that one day might save your life, get a decent one. You can even get the local fire brigade to come and install some decent ones for free.

I hope that was a tongue in cheek comment as I don't understand them mojo things, if not where should I keep my dog at night? out in the garden. First line of defense against burglars, and he's not locked in but his bed is there which he likes to occupy a lot.

A 4 year old died up the road from me yesterday and really shock us up. As we also have a 4 year old. Early reports suggest they had fire/smoke alarms, and this saved the other children and the mum. But i would advise all of you to phone the local fire station and as a family, sit down and go in detail what will happen when there is a fire in the house.

And please do take the one's from the fire station as they are sealed shut to stop people removing the batteries. They are more than happy to replace damaged, broken ones. They last 10 years too.

I think they would much rather going round and giving these out and advice on escapes routes everyday rather than bringing out a 4 yr old from a burning house.

It's VITAL you replace the batteries or get new smoke alarms. They could save your and your family's lives.
