ALARM WARNING: Fire service bosses in Devon are writing to residents who have had a Fire Angel ST-620 model smoke alarm installed following reported problems with the model.
Community safety and risk reduction manager Phil Martin stressed the service was taking precautions to ensure the homes it had supplied with the alarm are fitted correctly.
He added: “There is a very small chance that should this particular model of alarm fall from the ceiling or is dropped or damaged in any other way, it could cause a short circuit which could cause overheating. Public safety is always of paramount importance to us, which is why we are writing to those homes that we have a record of having the ST-620 model installed.”
“If we believe they are at risk, we will carry out a home safety visit to assess the situation.”
