    Which ones do you recommend and which ones to stay clear of?

            I think you need different alarms to do different jobs. A smoke alarm only detects smoke which is fine for some areas of a property but a heat alarm is better in others. I always buy an alarm which has a light that comes on when the alarm is triggered. If you have a power outage (caused by a fire) you need to be able to see your way out of the house. I also thoroughly recommend a carbon monoxide alarm not just if you have a gas boiler but because carbon monoxide poisoning can be caused by wood burning stoves and indoor BBQs etc.

            I get all mine from B & Q after advice from my local fire officer. They even have a "toast proof" alarm too

                In which case get yourself a small fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen. You life has got to be worth more than £16.98.

                  I'm a qualified chef, never used a fire extinguisher yet and have no intention to now - although in saying that, I suppose I should buy one for when poppy is in there

                          I intended to post up a list of the Top Ten Causes of House Fires to remind us all that prevention is better than cure. I found myself reading the London Fire Brigade diary of incidents where I noticed some unusual reasons such as a crystal ball on a windowsill which caused the sun to set fire to the curtains and burn down the house

                          My favourite is a fire started by a bird dropping a lit cigarette butt in someone's house which goes to show that it's impossible to prevent all fires hence the need for a reliable smoke detector
