Smoke Alarm Guidance

The Scottish Government has issued landlords with guidance on fire detection in private rented properties. There are more than 6000 fires detected in homes in Scotland each year with around 50 deaths and 1300 injuries resulting from these fires. The Domestic Technical Guidance Handbook states the following:
  • one functioning smoke alarm in the 1 room which is frequently used by the occupants for general daytime living purposes
  • one functioning smoke alarm in every circulation space, such as hallways and landings
  • one heat alarm in every kitchen, and
  • all alarms should be interlinked.

Why Smoke Alarms and Heat Alarms  are Important

According to national statistics, fires in homes which have installed hard wired smoke alarms are discovered more rapidly (less than 5 minutes) after ignition; and are associated with lower death rates.
