Free Home Fire Safety Visit & Smoke Alarm

The London Fire Brigade are carrying out free home fire safety checks in Greater London, and they'll also fit a free smoke alarm where needed.

Other fire brigades across the UK may also be running this offer. Ring your local brigade and ask!!

most fire brigades so this anyway, all year round. Kind of makes sense, prevention is better than cure.

Just good to get the message out. I didn't know they did this until now.

Not sure how trying to help people gets a cold vote..!

Just voted it hot great idea to let everyone know

had mine done last year by west midlands fire brigade they check everything your wires your sockets suitable fire escapes etc and then fit smoke alarms

And you also get free smoke alarms!!

i thought this was great. i got it done with 6 burley firemen, had a good chat and now north-lincs homes are doing my house up and taking them down and replacing them with electric ones. so now im going to pass them onto others who can use them but what a real shame. i did not know till yesterday i was having them taken down. but i vote them hot

Yeah, one of my neighbours had this done and they sent a fire engine full of firemen out to do it. Looked like great fun. And, of course, they're some of the most important life-saving devices around...

Can confirm Durham an Darlington FRB do this as well.

had it last year in Edinburgh too.

hot hot hot , they came round gateshead to ,stuck one up for free , if you have an old chip pan they will replace it with a deep fat fryer for free also.
check your local area.

Considering the post's content this has to voted 'hot'... flaming hot in fact

sorry, couldn't resist. I am really voting this hot anyway, good post.

My girlfriends mum did this and they fitted several smoke alarms for free and gave them advice on what electronic points to not leave on overnight or if not at home.

When I did it there came to the house for 5 mins, checked my current alarms, said they were fine and then gave me 2 free ones to use when the current ones run out.

Is a great for a couple of free smoke alarms and got the nosy neightbours talking - as their massive fire engine was parked outside the house. Also, if you got kids, could ask them if they can go have a look in the fire engine? But beware men, lots of women love a firemen in uniform!!

They did this on the Fylde for us also. Two smoke alarms and a visit from the fire engine. The nipper loved it as I am sure did the wife...

This is a great post, even if it only reminds you to check your batteries in a smoke detector you already have this may still save a life!!!!
:thumbsup:

I am a fireman and have seen deaths reduced massively due to this initiative. Most counties will give you a few things extra to the smoke alarms like energy saving light bulbs etc.

Book it today!
Don't forget to offer us a cuppa lol. :thumbsup:

Heat added

Aberdeen Is Doing And Has Been Doing For A Wee While Now....

I had them out about 2years ago as my new home did not have any fire alarms (south shields, tyne and wear) 2- 10yr one's fitted in the correct places and also vital advice on electrical safety, ie how many amps a double socket can take. Did not realise i was over loading my socket behind tv with video, dvd, games console even when using a gang that is protected. Really worth having them out!!

Same in west yorkshire is a hot deal though
