Do the smoke alarms that the London Fire Brigade provide as part of home fire safety visits also detect carbon monoxide?

London Fire Brigade (LFB) does not currently supply carbon monoxide detectors at home fire safety visits. LFB’s wider work on carbon monoxide safety includes a two year project part-funded by the Gas Safety Trust to provide home fire safety visits, carbon monoxide alarms and data loggers to London houseboat residents.

Carbon monoxide alarms were provided during pilot Fire Safe and Well visits and their impact will be evaluated as part of the wider MOPAC evaluation. LFB’s Community Safety team is producing a paper for the Deputy Mayor’s Fire and Resilience Board in early 2020 on the potential of providing carbon monoxide alarms, alongside other assistive technology, at future Home Fire Safety Visits.
