Fire Kills’ Annual Report 2010-11 highlights Safelincs’ contribution

The Department for Communities and Local Government’s Fire Kills campaign aims to raise awareness of key fire safety messages to the general public. Safelincs has been a partner of the Fire Kills campaign for a number of years and its contributions have been highlighted in the latest annual report.

As an online fire safety products retailer, Safelincs provides an opportunity to encourage those who are safety conscious to consider the wellbeing of their friends and family. They have created a ‘reminders’ website that allows people to sign up to receive free reminders about testing and replacing smoke alarms. This website (www.safelincs.co.uk/reminders) features the Fire Kills logo and supporting fire safety messages.

Safelincs were the exclusive retailer of the new Ei Electronics ‘easichange’ replacement alarms for mains-wired smoke alarms in 2010-11. They produced a leaflet in line with the Fire Kills identity guidelines featuring fire safety messages to ensure that customers’ smoke alarms were in good working order.”

Primary Times promote our smoke alarm reminder service

Primary times, a magazine written for teachers, parents and children in the UK has written an article promoting our smoke alarm reminder service.

In conjunction with Fire Kills we are encouraging people to test their smoke alarms when the clocks change on March 25th 2012. Primary times is helping us spread this message. The article not only encourages readers to test their alarms on the 25th but to also set up a free reminder using our reminder service to alert them to test their smoke alarms on a regular basis.

If you are interested in setting up a reminder to test your alarms on a regular basis please visit our reminders page www.safelincs.co.uk/reminders.

Go on, push that button, it might save your life.

Landlords use Safelincs’ free reminder service to help maintain smoke alarms in good order

Landlords frequently install main smoke alarm systems to BS5839 part 6 grade D in their premises. These smoke alarms should be regularly tested to ensure that they are in good working condition. Visiting the tenant regularly is not really an option, so how can you ensure the tenant is testing the alarm? The solution is easy – When purchasing smoke alarms from Safelincs, the buyer can ask for emailed or texted reminders to be send to a chosen email address or mobile number. Just choose your preferred frequency of reminder and Safelincs will take care of the rest. This service and how the tenant should act on receipt of a reminder should then be mentioned in the tenancy agreement.

You can even register for this service without buying smoke alarms. Just register for free on our reminder page

Test it, change it, replace it – it might save your life!

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.
