Found 15th Nov 2013
South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue will perform a home safety check and also fit fire alarms FREE of charge if your home currently doesn't have one.

The aim is to save lives and make homes safer places.

We had this done a few years ago and the service and professionalism is fantastic.

I would highly recommend everyone in South Yorkshire does this. There have been far too many fire deaths,

To book: To receive a free home safety check call 0114 253 2314 or text the word FREE to 87023.

From the website: That’s why we are committed to offering free Home Safety Checks and free smoke alarms to people throughout South Yorkshire.
During a visit firefighters will give advice on how to make the home safer, what to do in the event of a fire and what to do if you are trapped by a fire. They will also fit a smoke alarm free if your house is without one and explain how to maintain it correctly.
We have already reduced accidental fires by 33%. By following some basic fire safety tips, you can help us reduce this further.

nothing new but they do post leaflets every time. I just got 2 fitted at weekend they don't give you more than 2 and offer advice.

they do this in North Yorkshire as well. No excuss not to get them.

life savers for sure. I lived through a house fire when I was young because of these. Heat!, but the good kind!

They are often taken for granted - "It won't happen to me" etc

I searched "North Yorkshire Fire Free Smoke Alarm" and got this link -for anyone in North Yorkshire - northyorksfire.gov.uk/com…rms

I'd imagine similar searches for other fire brigades would work too

Berkshire says: "Berkshire fire and rescue service can provide a free home safety check, including making an escape plan, advice on the action to be taken in the event of a fire and fitting smoke alarms: if appropriate a free smoke alarm may be issued."

It occurs to me though that they could be leaving themselves open to issues if the supplied items malfunction or anything...

With the announcement of the new fire and CO2 alarm requirements as of 1 Oct 15, does anyone know whether S Yorkshire are still offering a free service to assist landlords with this matter, or will landlords be raising their rent? Thanks in advance to anyone that knows. Daz
