This is whole post is just a lot of presumption I don't see where it mentions anything about 36,000 properties without Fire Alarms and irresponsible owners? (there will be easily as AirBNB is world wide) They are just highlighting the issue and trying to make places safer. As AirBNB is world wide, Pretty sure a remote island in the phillipines, Vietnam and some of Kenya as examples probably has no law or regulation for this and in some places limited electric that isn't available all day. Everyone is so negative about everything these days, a company does something good to help something and lets just talk about the negative aspect of it. I would of said the offer would of been better for the places less likely to have them like remote islands and locations or where safety standards aren't as high. Rather then places like UK where they can be brought cheap.
Very worrying as mentioned, they should already have them installed, something I thought they had to do, obviously not
Interesting argument that ...
i don't get why people don't fit carbon alarm, when you can't see or smell it and can happen anytime, ten pounds for peace of mind
If you book a fire safety check with the fire brigade they fit fire alarms for free & give you a number for free replacements when they run out of power. It may just be for those on low income but it's worth booking anyway.
