New Fire Alarm Regulations – help for those who own their home

The law on fire alarms has changed which means that all Scottish homes need to have interlinked alarms. Interlinked means if one goes off, they all go off, giving people more time to escape and call emergency services.

Angus Care & Repair have some funding available to help home owners with the costs of the new alarms. To be eligible for support from Care & Repair Scotland, you must live in and own your home that has a Council Tax banding of A-C. You must also either be of state pension age and in receipt of guaranteed Pension Credit or have a disability and be in a support group for Employment and Support Allowance.

If you meet the criteria, then please contact Angus Care & Repair by email at anguscr@caledoniaha.co.uk

Alternatively, if you do not meet these criteria then you may be able to get some advice and assistance from the Scottish Fire Service. For more information see the Fire Scotland website.

We do not offer any funding to support with the installation of alarms, and all enquiries relating to this should be made direct to Angus Care & Repair and/or the Scottish Fire Service.
