Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms can be mains powered or battery powered (some are mains powered with a battery backup).

If your alarm has a battery and is not functioning correctly please check whether the batteries require replacement before reporting your issue.

The replacement of alarm batteries is an occupier's responsibility.

If you are unsure how to change the battery please check the manual or watch the following video clip:

Communal Fire Alarm Some purpose built blocks of residential flats are equipped with a fire alarm system in communal areas.

Any fault must be reported immediately to us.

Please call us immediately if you find any fault with the system.
