Contractors for Southwark Council will soon be installing a radio linked smoke and heat detection system in tenanted flats in Simla, Burwash and Nashe House.
Tenants in these three blocks should have received a letter from Southwark Council with details of the work to be done.
If you already have a smoke/heat alarms installed in your property then these will be changed to comply with this new system. The new system will also be supplied with an LED touch controller which can be used to test and when necessary silence the alarms.
The alarms are of a high specification and are not prone to false alarms caused by the fumes of smoking or cooking for example. The system uses radio frequency signals to link the alarms together in your dwelling, providing you with the earliest possible detection and warning of a fire or smoke in your property and thus allowing time for escape.
The contractor, Swann Engineering Group Ltd, has been engaged to carry out these works on behalf of the council.
Please contact the contractor directly on 01376 554259 or free phone 0800 0214805 to make an appointment for the installation, or for any further information or issues you may have during the course of these works. All contractor operatives should be carrying company identification, so please do not allow access to your dwelling without first seeing this identification.
