Aberdeen City Council has called on residents in the city to guarantee that working fire alarms are installed in their homes.

All of the authority's houses are installed with battery smoke alarms and the organisation is focusing on a ten-year programme, which aims to replace them with hard wired alarms that feature heat detectors.

Its plea follows Grampian Fire and Rescue Service's roadshow in the north-east, where it ran a national campaign to persuade people to use smoke alarms.

Councillor Ramsay Milne, whose ward experienced the highest number of house fires in Grampian last year, said: "I'm very concerned that so many city residents appear to be at risk of having a fire at home and would urge everyone to take care, make sure they have a working smoke detector fitted and ensure they have a fire escape plan."

Mr Milne stressed that smoke detectors are cheap, easy to install and "save lives".Aberdeen Council has urged for working smoking alarms to be fitted in all houses.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801490247-ADNFCR
