Perth and Kinross Council is confident of meeting the deadline to install interlinking fire alarms. By February 2022 every home in Scotland will be required to have interlinked heat and smoke alarms.The Scottish Government brought forward the legislation after the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017.Privately rented and new-build homes are already required to meet these standards.An average three-bedroomed house needs three smoke alarms, one heat alarm and one carbon monoxide detector at an estimated cost of around £220.This cost is based on alarms that do not need to be installed by an electrician.The Scottish Government is providing financial help for eligible older and disabled homeowners with installation, in partnership with Care and Repair.
