Smoke Alarm Wtih Home Fire Safety Visit From Local Fire Brigade

The majority of households in the UK are entitled to Smoke Alarms. However, its not as simple as calling into a fire station and getting them. Firefighters and specialist teams will come to your home and fit them for you.

This all forms part of carrying out a Home Fire Risk Assessment.

To book a home Visit to have the Home Fire Risk Assessment carried out please fill out the form by following the link

If its not their house, they shouldnt be fitting things to the ceiling without permission?

I signed up for this about a year ago.

Got a call from the other half after the fire-engine complete with sirens, lights and a full compliment of firemen had left our house.

hahaha, glad I wasn't home when they turned up

Yeah I thought the same.We had a landlord from hell, and even he had fitted them!!! lol. I've searched google and can't really find anything put in place, they're saying that it's more about being a good landlord rather than law.:thinking:

So, you can live there, but not live safely without worry?! It's against the law to not be able to live peacefully in a house, and I'm pretty certain it's against the law for a landlord to refuse a tenant to put up a fire alarm. It's not like they're changing the decor scheme- this is life or death.

the service and the eye candy would work wonders for an ageing old girl like me. people go for it, be safe

Found this - scary stuff. Not a legal requirement - I thought it was!

Smoke Alarms
All properties built since June 1992 must have been fitted with mains powered smoke detection alarms.

Although there is no legislation requiring smoke alarms to be fitted in other ordinary tenanted properties, it is generally considered the common law 'Duty of Care' means that Landlords and their Agents could be liable should a fire cause injury or damage in a tenanted property where smoke alarms are not fitted.

We therefore strongly recommend that the Landlord fits at least one smoke detector alarm in the hall and landing areas of each floor of the property.

They ain't fire detectors, they are smoke detectors....when you are in bed and you have a fire raging downstairs burning all the toxic foam in your furniture, then they will come in very useful.

Have you seen all the adverts on TV about testing you smoke alarms???

... a visit from my local fire brigade, i'll go along with that!!!:whistling::

FIRE=SMOKE the kitchen and the hall way were full of smoke luckily we noticed before any real damage was done

Well chuffed!!!
