New tenant packs designed to help landlords raise awareness of fire and carbon monoxide dangers have been launched by Aico Ltd.
Aico, a major provider of residential fire and carbon monoxide alarms in the UK, hope that the new tenant packs, part of its #AlarmsSaveLives campaign, will highlight how important it is to regularly test your Fire and Carbon Monoxide Alarms.
Customers can currently request a variety of #AlarmsSaveLives resources from the Aico website, including A3 and A4 posters, a fridge magnet, a coaster, a pen and a tenant card highlighting how to test an Aico alarm.
The new #AlarmsSaveLives animation is also available for download and use across organisations’ social media channels, to help with further raising awareness of this campaign.
The initial idea for the tenant packs came about following a conversation between Peter Marr, senior electrical officer of Sheffield City Council and Joanne White, marketing manager of Aico.
Marr commented: “We have been working closely with Aico for many years, investing and improving fire safety for residents and properties alike.
“As a social housing provider, occupancy profiles mean training is always an on-going issue, as the weak link to any system is often the human element; therefore, reminders and re-educating is an ever constant.
“This is an excellent example of a simple idea being developed and improved when shared; a real positive when likeminded companies’ philosophy is to strive for improvement.”
Cllr Phillip O’Dell, Harrow Council’s cabinet member for housing, is among those supporting the campaign.
He said: “It’s the most important button in the house - press it regularly for peace of mind. It’s a message we reinforce for our tenants all the time, and why we’re fully behind Aico’s campaign to encourage regular smoke detector testing.”
