The ‘new’ Interlinked Smoke Alarms (required by law in Scotland by Feb 2022)

In February 2022, Scottish law will require that every household has interlinked fire alarms installed.  People who contact Age Concern Ayr ask questions like, “What does interlinked mean?‘ and ‘Why can’t I just continue using the ones I have just now?’

In response to this, we have created an easy-to-read version of what is required, taken from the fuller Scottish Government document, to assist our elderly visitors and you can view this guide either HERE or by clicking the thumbnail image opposite  (which will open a preview a .pdf version of the document).
