The Scottish government has announced an extra £500,000 to help vulnerable people install fire alarms,
two days before new rules come into force.And the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service has already received £1m to install alarms in homes of people at highest risk.
Every home must have the following:
All alarms should be ceiling mounted and interlinked. Where there is a carbon-fuelled appliance (such as boilers, fires - including open fires - and heaters) or a flue, a Carbon Monoxide detector is also required - this does not need to be linked to the fire alarms.
New build and privately rented homes have been required to have interlinked smoke alarms for more than a decade.
The rules will also apply to owner-occupied homes and those in the social rented sector from 1 February. They place a legal duty on councils to monitor how many homes are compliant.
Housing Secretary Shona Robison said the alarms will save lives.
