Firefighters entering a property

Protect yourself and your community

If you're a resident and you don't have a smoke alarm, our Fire Safety Team can send you a battery-operated alarm (free for tenants; available at cost price for leaseholders) as part of an ongoing programme of fire safety upgrades on our estates.

Longer-term, we'll be installing smoke alarms that connect to the main electricity supply, removing the need to keep replacing batteries. We'll also install new fire-resistant doors on properties.

The London Fire Brigade offer home visits to certain groups, offering fire safety advice and fitting a smoke alarm "where appropriate". Am I eligible?
