The concern raised yesterday (see News – 'An issue of security in the home for older residents') by a resident about a smoke alarm installation at her elderly mother's house in Audlem, has produced further information. It appears the Fire Service had put a brightly coloured letter through the door at some

point but it had floated away and wasn't found until after a search. It also appears the smoke alarm installers were in uniform too. But the letter does require the householder to telephone a number to stop what is, in effect, a cold call. With a very elderly resident this may well cause confusion even if the smoke alarm installation is with the very best intentions. But as our correspondent, who raised the issue, says wryly: "At least I'm now assured it's a fire alarm and not a bugging device that's been installed!"
