Fife Council upgrades to Aico 3000 Series smoke alarms

Long standing Aico customer, Fife Council has engaged in a rolling programme to upgrade all of its 32,000 properties with Aico 3000 Series Alarms.

Fife Council is a leading light in fire safety in the social housing sector, being both an early adopter of technology and a proponent of going well beyond minimum requirements of fire safety protection set under British Standards and Scottish legislation.

Jim Macdonald, Fife Council compliance manager, explains: “We have been installing alarms to LD2 for a number of years as the safety of our tenants is paramount. We take into account social and health issues when conducting risk assessments. We still have a number of smokers who continue to smoke in their bedrooms despite the health and safety warnings we are all familiar with.  In these instances we go beyond LD2 by putting alarms in bedrooms; LD2 Plus, if you like!

“You can’t put a cost on someone’s life, but you can put a cost on the potential damage and the resulting costs and that cost can be over £1 million.  That’s a direct cost to the Council. If we can avoid just one fire by fitting the best level of protection possible, we have actually saved money and, more importantly, protected lives.  Using the 3000 Series alarms provides us with the best possible protection and helps us future proof our fire alarm systems.”

Fife Council is fitting Aico’s latest 3000 Series throughout its properties, including the innovative Ei3024 Multi-Sensor and the Ei3028 Heat/Carbon Monoxide alarm.
