“We will be out in the local community in the coming days to offer reassurance to local residents, which will include free smoke alarm fittings.

“It is imperative that every household in Nottinghamshire has working smoke alarms on every level of their home. To help with the testing of them, we have recently introduced a free reminder service, which you can read more about and sign up to, here.

“Thank you to our blue light services for their work over the weekend.”
