Can you still get free smoke alarms?
Most fire service companies in the UK offer free fire alarms. But not everyone is eligible for one and the criteria can differ depending on where you live.
Some services focus on the condition of the homes when they issue free fire alarms, whereas others focus on the people. You’re usually eligible for a free fire alarm if you’re over 75, suffer from long term health problems or are disabled.
Do fire alarms need to be hardwired in the UK?
Since 1992, building regulations require at least one smoke alarm to be directly wired to the mains to be installed in every new build. Many people living in new properties could be using smoke alarms that are way overdue for a replacement.
Any fire security systems should also, ideally, be backed up with a battery pack in case of a power cut.
What are the 2 types of fire alarms?
There are two main types of fire alarms:
These are the alarms that are triggered by the slightest household smell, resulting in annoyed neighbours! Approximately 5 million households in the UK with battery-powered smoke alarms take the battery out due to nuisance noises, thus putting themselves at risk.
For this reason, ionisation alarms should not be placed near kitchens where they can be triggered by cooking smells and fumes.
These alarms use more modern technology so they usually won’t be set off by just any smells. Although they are more expensive, the safety and peace of mind provided is well worth the money.
These can be installed near kitchens but not close to poorly ventilated bathrooms because the exposure to steam could trigger false alarms.
Not only can thermal cameras detect fires, with COVID pandemic around the camera can read a persons temperature upon entry you can be assured of your family or personnel safety
