"The choice of UK fire brigades" exactly, if you phone them they will supply and fit for free and provide other fire safety advice.
My parents had a smoke alarm fitted by the fire brigade.

They fitted it too close to the (very small) kitchen so it went off everytime someone made toast.

Also the battery is soldered to the board so it cannot be recharged or replaced. Theirs lasted 18 months (probably because of all the false alarms) and then the entire unit had to scrapped.
Fire Angel have had several major product recalls after their smoke alarms actually started fires!

This is the model of the possible faulty unit " Fire Angel ST 620 "

Good price for a long life smoke alarm. Better keep your receipts in case you get a faulty one. I received two free from the fire brigade. One never worked.
We had them fitted free when the fire service was doing a camapaign round here. They look to be the same as the ones in this post. Both failed within 2 years, they both looked as if they were working from the LED but when you held the test button nothing happened. Neither of those had ever gone off with a false alarm.

On the replacements, the downstairs one went off one day due to burnt toast and wouldn't stop. I had to remove it to stop it, then everytime I put it back it just started again. The reset button did nothing. The fire service came again to swap it.

So they seem a little cheapy, going to have to vote cold as a pair of these would cost £7.00, compared to ringing the fire service and getting them for free including free fitting and free replacements when ever they fail.
If you read those articles, you will see that the fires were caused by putting the alarms in between papers in a rack, no doubt making them heat up, hardly the alarms fault, more a case of careless use on the owners fault, another case of media sensationalism.

Still its cheaper to get the Fire Service to fit them ;-)


I also had two fitted by fire service, both failed within 18 mnths, although light still flashes every 40s. Test your fire alarms!
I've just replaced one of these with a fire sentry smoke alarm from Asda @ £5. It kept going off all the time even with a new battery.
Looked in my local Tesco this morning and I couldn't see any
My advice is get numerous ones. some that react to heat - some smoke. they are pretty cheap now the twin packs of smoke ones from B&Q etc (£8ish) some that I think are not very responsive or working properly go off when it is very steamy near kitchen, the heat (fireangel 10 year sealed unit) ones are a nightmare for me to know if working I have even had a candle under them and nothing, so not sure if working - therefore by numerous in case some are faulty?
as for the ones from the fire service, I am sure they have a budget that is being squeezed so I buy my own as I can afford to. not got loads of money or anything but these free things should be means tested IMO.
go tesco / asda and buy cheap alarm, climb step ladder and install alarm.
hi guys. I am a firefighter and as some have suggested we do fit them for free and also give fire safety advice.
Its funny when people talk about our budget and suggest buying them instead of having us fit them for you for free, however greater manchester has been set a target by the government to fit alarms in 180,000 houses over the next three years and so you would be doing us a favour by allowing us to fit them for our for free! sadly its one of those targeted things that we have in the fire service and therefore is something our line managers like to us to meet. without your uptake we have to resort to literally knocking on doors and asking people if they want smoke alarms to meet our targets, something that personally I never joined the fire service to do.
it makes me laugh when people feel like they "shouldn't" be getting the service because they can afford their own but don't realise that this is a government initiative that they fund and as tax payers you have already paid several times over for these "free" alarms!

of course I can only speak about my brigade at greater Manchester but wouldn't be surprised if it was not the case across the country, visit your local brigades website and in the case of greater Manchester call 0800 555 815 to book your home safety inspection now.

not voted either way for the above reasons vs the fact that the item is cheaper than rrp, which s obviously the point of the website. hope this is food for thought for some. thanks
Fastest reacting...........spose that means every time you fart everyone will get a warning....................lmao...
This'll be yet another local Tesco deal.
Perfect excuse to get a fireman around
Hmmmmm anthony69 wants a fireman..........wonder why.......has he burnt the toast again.......
Another Tesco fantasy hunt,,,
These are on offer at Tesco Metro in Bolton for £2.75!
we've had these fitted by the fre service. Got 2 in the house.
One of them broke so we phoned the manufacturer and they put a replacement in the post to us which arrived the next day. Also included an SAE so we could send the faulty one back to them so they could look at it.
HI all

as a serving firefighter do not pay for these as every fire service will supply and fit these for you FREE of charge

simply go to your fire services website and book an appointment online or telephone your local fire service

This is from NorthYorkshire's fire site....obviously not free for all of us

In some circumstances North Yorkshire Fire & Rescue Service will supply smoke alarms free of charge as part of a home fire safety visit. The list below details these circumstances:

•aged 60 and above
•visually or hearing impaired
•living alone
•living in social housing
•physically or mentally impaired
•in receipt of benefits
•living in non traditional accommodation eg. caravans or houseboats
•single parent families
So - no one but the OP has found these in any Tesco for £3.50 and we're over 400 degrees!

Whatever happened to having to post a picture of yourself paying for it at the till, providing DNA samples etc?
sparco I,m shocked here in Strathclyde we will fit a smoke alarm free of charge to anyone who asks
I scanned one of these in the Cardiff store and it was still full price.... must be a store specific deal

Still missing a timestamp & DNA sample

This is a burning hot deal

Our fire service said that every one they fit saves them money in the long run as they help to prevent fires (ie alerts you whilst something is smoldering etc)

They obviously also save lifes.

They said that they had had a bit of a shift in focus to try and prevent more fires
flipflop2

Another Tesco fantasy hunt,,,



Blimey are Tesco's selling fantasies now.... I'm going to see if they have mine in stock.
i like how everyone is stating the fact that its free for the fire service to fit them. Yes this is true, but they cant fit them tonight, so if your house goes up in smoke tonight your protection isnt there.
Personally i wouldnt care if its full price i would still pay for the chance of a lifesaver. Also it rings true about people not using fireservice to get their free ones installed, this is the problem with our 'reactive' country.
I am pretty sure this model has a "hush" feature as per this;

Your smoke alarm features “Smart Silence™”
technology. Smoke alarms can sometimes react
to cooking fumes or other non emergency
situations. Should your alarm sound, the central
test button can be used to temporarily silence
the alarm. Your alarm will automatically return to
full sensitivity within 10 minutes.
NOTE: The test button accurately tests the
alarm’s smoke sensing circuit, there is no need to
test your alarm with smoke. If your smoke alarm
fails to give an audible test signal, please refer
immediately to the troubleshooting guide at the
end of this manual.
WARNING: Test your smoke alarm
at least once per week.

NOTE: If the level of smoke reaching the alarm is
very high the alarm silence will be overridden and
the alarm will continue to sound

They weren't recalled though, they found four faulty ones, and they had been damaged by the householders.

Just to clarify - no FireAngel product has ever been recalled. There was an independent investigation into any recent events and the product was found to be fit for purpose when fitted and used correctly. This was agreed with any relevant Fire Brigade and also Trading Standards. If you'd like any more information on this subject, please feel free to email info@fireangel.co.uk
These are RUBBISH alarms, not fit for purpose, cannot understand why anyone would vote HOT for it.. look at all the reviews online then see if you would trust it!!
