Interlinked Alarms – New Fire Safety Legislation

Interlinked Alarms – New Fire Safety Legislation

Attached is an information leaflet that I would urge you to read from the Fire Service, it contains full details on the type of fire alarms required. I have also outlined below some of the rules and useful links:

·         one smoke alarm installed in the room most frequently used for general daytime living purposes;

·         one smoke alarm in every circulation space on each storey, such as hallways and landings;

·         one heat alarm installed in every kitchen.

All alarms should be ceiling mounted and interlinked

Where there is a carbon-fuelled appliance (such as boilers, fires (including open fires) and heaters) or a flue, a carbon monoxide detector is also required which does not need to be linked to the fire alarms.

Find out more about this on the Scottish Government’s website
