New Fire Alarms 2022

We would like to help you to ensure that your home is compliant with the new Scottish Legislation for Home Fire Safety -2022.

It is now the law that your home meets the minimum standard required by this new legislation. The new legislation requires you to install interlinked Smoke and Heat Alarms along with the Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarm where ever applicable. More information can be found on the government website here.
To be eligible for assistance from Care & Repair you or someone in your home must meet the below eligibility criteria:
  • You are a resident of Lanarkshire
  • You live in a house that is owned by you
  • One of the members in the household must be aged over 60 or living with a Physical or Mental disability of any age 

Funding to assist clients in Lanarkshire with the installation of fire detection has now been exhausted. Due to this we are no longer able to install fire detection free of charge.

The new legislation is designed to keep clients safer in their own homes by interlinking the alarms and ensuring you have enough alarms in the home to cover the whole house.

Care and Repair Lanarkshire recognise that many clients still need to upgrade their fire detection.

We know that this change is expensive for clients, so to help ensure that as many clients as possible can afford to change their fire detection we have decided to offer the supply and installation of
devices at a discounted rate for a limited time.

All devices installed will be compliant with current Scottish Legislation and fitted by our trained Care and Repair Small Repairs Officers.
