I have never seen them giving free. I live in London so I don't think there are any free here.

​Here in West Yorkshire not only are they free they also fit them for you!

Where I am they only come and fit them if your household has under 5s or OAPs in residence.

I work for a fire service. Free smoke alarms vary by fire service. The home safety check that a lot provide are invaluable. They will fit smoke alarms and provide advice on things like overloading plug sockets and avoiding hazards in the home as well as planning escape routes should the worst happen. Ring your local fire service to see whether they offer this brilliant service.

Aside from this, these smoke alarms look decent for the money.

I live in London and it is free. You just call up your local fire service and ask them for the free smoke alarms they advertise. They will come in a few days and install them for you in the most effective place.

You could phone your local fire station or go the the West Yorkshire Fire & Rescue website to book online.

smoke alarms are free here in the 'stockton' area.. however i wouldn't get one fitted unless i were old or disabled as it just doesnt feel right taking time and money off the fire brigade to save myself 4 quid

Exactly

The two London Fire Brigade officers who fitted my alarms told me that they're quite happy to install them as it saves both the household and them from a potential life-or-death situation (particularly in London where Johnson decimated the service).

Its worth noting that if you are have a family member registered as blind or severely sighted you may be entitled to a full smoke alert system from the LFB including linked alarms, sounder and mattress 'shock' pad. Local councils can arrange this, even tight fisted ones like Greenwich

​make sure you don't ring 999 lol
sometimes you must have seen fire engines stoped in streets for no reason, that's when they hand leaflets out etc, also they used to give 5 now they only give you 2. one for upstairs landing and the other downstairs landing.
if you want one for living room etc I'd suggest you just buy this. p.s my battery has finished on mine after 2 years.

what a foolish and idiotic comment! your not taking money from the fire brigade, please explain what makes you think that, also if you bothered to look you would see that the officers that come to put them in for you are still on call and may have to leave if they get a call, they also have a look around your house and help you with fire prevention and plans on what to do in the event of a fire,

just an opinion.. i think people who are able to fit them themselves and get the fire service to do so are either tight or lazy.

Just rang my fire department and we are not eligible for a home visit

If Fire Brigades are still fitting those 10 year Fireangel ones with non-replaceable Chinese batteries that might last 2 years if you're lucky, then you're better off buying these and fitting them yourself if you can.

so are you going to answer the question, what makes you think its taking money off the brigade? and do you feel the same way for the crime prevention officer, sandwich and picnic hamper come to mind(_;)

careful with the fireservice ones... they just glue them to your ceiling so taking it down may be a pain!
I would never put someone off buying a fire alarm but fire alarms should be interlinked so when one goes off, they all go off, waking you up if necessary if a fire starts elsewhere in the house.

there are a range of wireless ones available now which you would not need to wire in to interconnect them (only to get a power supply, it from a nearby light fitting)

like I said though, get this if you need it as anything is better than nothing!

​Someone pays for it. I think their point was, if you can afford it maybe you should buy your own. Though IMO if you can afford it then you should already have some.
