Following on from Leitrim Co Council's successful Smoke Alarm Scheme last year, Free smoke alarms are again being offered to vulnerable households in 2018. Under the community smoke alarm scheme, two 10 year battery operated smoke alarms (one Optical and one Ionisation) are provided to vulnerable homes in Leitrim who do not currently have them.
Applications are invited from individual households (for example older people, people with disabilities, lone parents and unemployed persons) who currently have no smoke alarms and are in a position to install the alarms themselves. Voluntary groups/volunteers and others who visit people in vulnerable households, are asked to identify and assist people in applying for and installing the alarms.
