Smoke alarms in the home

Smoke alarms should be fitted on every floor of your home. You should also fit carbon monoxide detectors if your property has a solid fuel burning appliance. Solid fuel burning appliances include things like coal fires and log burning stoves.

House fires destroy properties and lives. People are four times more likely to die in a house fire if they do not have a smoke alarm.

Carbon monoxide poisoning kills an estimated 30 to 50 people each year in the UK.

Don’t have a death on your hands. Act now and check your smoke alarms.
