Every year the Fire and Rescue Service is called to over 600,000 fires which result in over 800 deaths and over 17,000 injuries.
About 50,000 (140 a day) of these are in the home and kill nearly 500 and injure over 11,000, many which could have been prevented if people had an early warning and were able to get out in time. In fact you are twice as likely to die in a house fire that has no smoke alarm than a house that does.
Installing a smoke alarm could help save your home and the lives of you and your family.
Smoke alarms for the residential market can be from the very basic stand-alone battery operated which can be installed by the occupier by following the correct guide lines or for larger properties the smoke alarms can be installed by a professional company to offer interlinked mains operated devices with 10 year battery cells which last the life of the smoke alarm itself.
Modern technology also offers the option of interlinking detectors wirelessly which reduces the need for cable runs.
