Supply challenges, new offices and huge determination

27/01/2022

It's been a while since we posted to our blog so thought we'd do a small update.
The period since December has been challenging in regards to the installation of the heat & smoke alarms required to be in place by February 1st. Issues around availability of stock has been challenging for everyone in the sector.
Quite simply, there has not been the supply of product to meet the demand. 

At Edinburgh Alarm Company we've been working so hard to get through our job sheets, whilst facing the challenges both supply and Covid head on as best as possible.  We cannot thank you all for your continued patience.

We can say hand on heart that we are doing our utmost to get to everyone - not helped in the least by some suppliers sending us the wrong products!
However we take a positive mindset at EAC. We recently moved into a new office space on Ferry Road. This space in run by Edinburgh Palette and People Know How, two fantastic organisations doing so much for the people of Edinburgh.
If you know us, you know that supporting young people is a fundamental principle of what we want to do. 
This new office space will allow us to really support the new staff coming on board through the Kickstart programme, giving them a base to develop and grow as young people and employees.

Study finds smoke alarms may not wake up children

30 July 2021

An investigation by the BBC has found as many as 7 out of 8 children may show no signs of waking up when a smoke alarm sounds.

It is vitally important to  upgrade your home smoke alarm system to adhere to new Scots laws which comes into effect in February 2022. 

The new laws state that there should be interlined heat and smoke alarms in each home, as well as adequate carbon monoxide protection.

The key thing to remember about these life saving alarms is that should one sound, they all sound, providing a nice early warning to everyone in the house that they need to escape.
