Call us for a free smoke alarm


Essex County Fire and Rescue Service is urging everyone in the County to make sure they have working smoke alarms in their home.

According to national statistics 88% of homes have a smoke alarm but that means that there are 93,000 households in Essex which are at risk because they don’t have working smoke alarm.

The Service wants to ensure that every single home in the county has the excellent protection smoke alarms offer and will come to any home in Essex and fit smoke alarms free of charge.

All it takes is one phone call, or five minutes to fill in a simple online form, and officers will visit your home and give you all the help and advice you need as well as fitting smoke alarms to protect you and your family.

Divisional Officer Neil Fenwick said: “Just three breaths of smoke can be enough to kill if a fire breaks out when you’re sleeping.

“Smoke alarms are proven life savers. They give warning at the first sign of fire, waking you and your family up and giving everyone the time they need to get safely out and call the fire service.

“Although the majority of homes in the County have working smoke alarms we want to make sure that every home has the excellent protection they offer. We will visit your home, carry out a safety inspection, give you all the advice you need and fit smoke alarms entirely free of charge.”
