When we move in to a new home we are usually focussed on buying new furniture and all the personal touches that make it ours. This is part of the British home-owner experience, whether we are buying or renting a home. What tends to be forgotten are the not so glamorous aspects of house moving, including the purchasing and installation of smoke detectors and fire alarms.
Unfortunately a failure to get an approved electrical contractor to correctly install smoke detectors and fire alarms can be fatal. The 2011 National Statistics at www.communities.gov.uk shows that there is a high level of ignorance and/or indifference with 37% of the fire fatalities in that year due to a lack of smoke alarm installation.
The recent fire tragedy of the Philpotts family in Derbyshire highlights just how terrible a house fire without smoke detectors and alarms can be. Without smoke detectors and fire alarms the chances of surviving a house fire are minimal. The importance of getting domestic electrical contractors in to install smoke detectors cannot be over emphasized.
So, if you buying or renting a new house or commercial establishment you should give due consideration to the safety net that smoke detectors and fire alarms can provide.
