Noticed today that one of my smoke alarms was indicating it wanted a new battery so here is a reminder that with lights or candles on your christmas trees and with all those prezzies under it please don't neglect your smoke alarms. If you haven't got one, then get one as they only cost a few pounds but can save a lot of grief. Heres hoping you have a super christmas and a prosperous new year.
Much simpler rent a multi-occupancy house on 3 floors and you get smoke detecotrs, heat sensors, fire alarms that would wake the dead, break glass boxes, fire extinsgishers...ah the joys of students houses!
The annoying thing with the low battery alert is that it invariably starts in the middle of the night. The reason being that the house is at it's coldest adversely affecting the battery voltage. Also have one in the caravan which is falsely triggered by condensation. We were not popular with the neighbours when leaving early one morning with the caravan on tow and the fire alarm screeching away.
I lived in two houses in Middlesbrough on 3 floors the first had the lot - fire doors, illuminated emergency signs and lights, smashy boxes, and a stair well window that flies open when you have a fire...
The second had a knackered old fire blanket that had been used for who knows what!!!
Indeed the joys of student houses....
