Today marks the first day of our Twitter competition, where you have the chance to win 1 of 50 carbon monoxide alarms for your home. As a fire safety company and a Fire Kills partner, we know how important it is to promote and educate people about the dangers of smoke and other harmful gases in the home. Not only will you be able to learn a little something in our fire safety quiz, you will also be given the opportunity to sign up to our free smoke alarm reminders service, so you’ll never forget to change your batteries, test or replace your smoke alarm ever again!
As a thank you for your support in spreading this important message we are giving away a fantastic prize. Every day, for 25 days, two lucky winners will each receive a Kidde slimline digital CO alarm. Safelincs and Kidde have teamed up to provide these alarms that could potentially save your life.
The competition is now closed.
We are offering a new service, completely free of charge, that will remind households to check that their smoke alarms are in working condition and will actually protect them in case of a fire.
This week the government’s Fire Kills campaign launched its new advertising series to promote fire safety in the home. The focus of this year’s campaign is again on householders testing their alarms and replacing flat batteries. As stakeholders in the organisation, Safelincs are supporting this message with their new smoke alarm test reminder service.
Householders can register with the service and request notification by email or SMS when the next smoke alarm test is due. You can decide the reminder frequency when registering with the service. There are also options to request a reminder when the batterie needs replacing and the smoke alarm has come to the end of its useful life, which is usually after ten years.
To register with this free service, just visit www.safelincs.co.uk/reminders.
For their online customers, Safelincs have created further additions to this service. When you have placed an order with us, Safelincs offer to remind you about the regular tests your new fire safety equipment might require, e.g. the testing of your smoke alarms, the yearly service of your fire extinguishers, the regular testing of newly purchased emergency lighting ad more.
To benefit from this additional service, just order your fire safety equipment on www.safelincs.co.uk.
Safelincs are proud to announce that they have been invited to become a stakeholder in the Government’s Fire Kills campaign.
The most recent campaign delivered the message ‘Pull Your Finger Out’ to encourage people to check their smoke alarms more frequently.
To support this message in context with the relatively new online fire safety market, Safelincs will shortly be offering all their customers a free service to remind them when alarm batteries or smoke alarms are due for replacement. An additional weekly/monthly ‘have you checked your alarm’ reminder service will also be offered.
Safelincs offer a wide range of smoke alarms and a smoke alarm advice section is available.
