Hadleigh Rotary Club has joined forces with Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service to supply and fit fire alarms in vulnerable people’s homes.

The first batch of alarms were delivered on Thursday as part of the fire service’s Safer Home Visit programme, which sees officers visit the homes of vulnerable people to assess fire risks.

Each smoke alarm is fitted free of charge and will last for 10 years. A sensory alarm is also available for those with hearing or sight impairment.

“Rotary clubs help with local community needs, supporting the elderly, disabled or disadvantaged,” said Terry Wiles, of Hadleigh Rotary Club.

“The Rotary Club of Hadleigh is very pleased that our financial contribution will enable the purchase of smoke alarms for deserving households within the town.”
