Smoke Alarms

Smoke Alarms Save Lives

Derby Homes is responsible for installing and maintaining smoke alarms in your property.  We also need to carry out a smoke alarm safety check to all Derby City Council properties.

This must be done once a year and will either be completed at the same time as your gas safety servicing visit or will be completed by a qualified service engineer from our contractor SCCI Alphatrack Ltd.  Under your conditions of tenancy, you MUST allow staff into your home to carry out these safety checks.

How it works

If you have gas in your property, Derby Homes Repair Team will undertake the smoke alarm safety check at the same time as the Gas Safety check.

Otherwise, SCCI Alphatrack will write and let you know when they are in the area. If you’re out when our contractors call, they’ll leave a calling card. Just ring the number on the card to arrange an appointment.

If you need a specific appointment time, please phone SCCI Alphatrack on 01279 630567. You can make appointments Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm.

Remember, smoke is a killer and correctly fitted smoke alarm systems are designed to save lives.
