Each year the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government
runs the Community Smoke Alarm Scheme. Under the scheme, local authorities
will, with the assistance of the voluntary sector and others who visit persons in
vulnerable households, identify those households where there are no smoke
alarms and will arrange for the supply and installation of two smoke alarms in
each such household.
This tender is for the supply and delivery of 10 Year Battery Power Sealed
Ionisation Alarms and 10 Year Battery Powered Optical Alarms. Expressions of
Interest have been sought from the Local Authorities. These Expressions of
Interest are included in the tender request and show how many of each alarm
type will be delivered to the 25 participating Local Authorities. Historically, not all
Local Authorities have opted to take part in this scheme.
